Research

Siân’s research interests lie in understanding major human transitions in the past through the experiences of the most vulnerable people in the population: infants and children. Her work interrogates central archaeological questions of the intensification of agriculture and human responses to this seminal time in prehistoric Southeast Asia, East Asia and South America. She also contributes to topical issues in her discipline through her work on the ethics of the study of human remains.

Since 2007, Siân has had more than 100 peer-reviewed publications, and has gained grants from the Marsden Fund, Australian Research Council, FONDOCYT, Fullbright NZ, Wenner-Gren Foundation, and National Geographic. She is the Co-Editor-In Chief for Bioarchaeology International, and her co-edited book, The Mother-Infant Nexus in the Past: Small Beginnings, Significant Outcomes (Springer) has been used for the Research Excellence Framework (UK). Siân was the recipient of the Rowheath Trust Award and Carl Smith Research Medal, and the NZ Association of Scientists Hill Tinsley Medal.
