 Evan Muzzall

Head of SSDS

I am a formally trained bioarchaeologist and forensic anthropologist who became interested in data science through the measurement of bones, stones, and archaeological sites a long time ago. I earned my PhD in Biological Anthropology from Southern Illinois University Carbondale and, before joining Stanford, was the Instructional Services Lead at the UC Berkeley D-Lab. My personal research spans functional biomechanics, mortuary archaeology, microbiology, conflict and war, teaching pedagogy, and machine learning. I love anything to do with dogs, music, cooking, and the outdoors.
