Assistant Professor

Biography

Dr. Corey Maggiano is a Physical Anthropologist and Skeletal Biologist investigating the microstructure and chemistry of bone for applications in bioarchaeology, forensics, anatomy and musculoskeletal health.  Originally from rural Appalachia, Dr. Maggiano received his M.Sc. in Biology from the University of Central Florida and his Ph.D. in Anthropology from Ohio State University.  During his post-doctoral training with the Collaborative Training Program in Musculoskeletal Health (then the JuMP program) and his tenure as a Banting Fellow working with the Anthropology and Earth Sciences Departments at the University of Western Ontario, Canada, Dr. Maggiano combined histological and stable isotopic analyses to integrate biological, behavioral, and environmental inquiry in single bone fragments.  He is currently an Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Biological and Forensic Anthropology Lab here at the University of West Georgia.  He teaches Introduction to Physical Anthropology, Osteology, Human Origins, Forensics, and special topics courses like Genes and Genomania.  His other interests include biological and cultural evolutionary theory and philosophy of science.
