Research

Dr Stone’s research interests involve a diverse range of topics from a variety of disciplines.
She is involved in multiple research collaborations stemming from a unique skill set combining physiotherapy and GIS (geospatial analysis).
Dr Stone is actively enaged with research into the role that physiotherapy can play in the treatment of mental health issues, especially addiction.
Her work continues in a number of areas including biogeography and palaeobiogeography, palaeontology, primatology (conservation and rehabilitation), archaeology, geochronology and even counter terrorism.
