Bernardo Vila Rodriguez (New Jersey, USA 1986)
As a graduate of a Master in Biological Anthropology at the Universitat de Barcelona and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, he has extensive experience in working with archaeologically found human remains through his thesis study "3D surface area of upper limb entheses in two ancient populations of the Balearic Islands" using laboratorial methods such as cleaning and identification, measurement, 3D-scanning, and statistical analysis among others in order to examine the entheseal changes occurring at muscle attachment sites of the arm.
He has centered his studies on physical and forensic anthropology with a focus on human remains in and around the Mediterranean basin, with interests in genetics, population demographic variables and transitions, and the biological/environmental factors that affect our skeletal system.
