Dr. Sarah A Lacy is an assistant professor of biological anthropology at California State University Dominguez Hills. Her doctoral work focused on oral pathology in Neandertals and early modern humans in the Late Pleistocene in Europe and Southwest Asia and broadly overlaps the disciplines of paleoanthropology, pathology, Late Pleistocene archaeology, human-environment interaction, and the origins of health disparities. She is now working on developing a new collaborative project with the University of North Texas on respiratory health and air pollution in the Paleolithic. She is also working with Macedonian and Bulgarian colleagues to start a field school to train undergraduates while working on Neanderthal period archaeology in North Macedonia.
