QualificationsBA(Auck) PhD PGDipSci(Otago)
Research summaryBioarchaeology, Asia–Pacific, health and disease, forensic anthropology

Research

Patterns of prehistoric health and disease in the Asia–Pacific region as evidence of adaptation to the environment. This research has focused on Lapita-associated skeletal samples from Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea. Professor Buckley is also co-ordinating and collaborating on projects on diet and disease in Island and Mainland Southeast Asia skeletal samples and human skeletal remains from New Zealand (kōiwi tangata).

Research interests

Professor Buckley's interests focus on the effect of different cultural and ecological environments on the health and disease of prehistoric peoples in the Asia–Pacific region. This research is conducted by the analysis of museum-curated Pacific Island human skeletal remains and recently-excavated samples from Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia.
