Dr. Tracy Rogers

Forensic Anthropology; the Real “Bones”

Tracy Rogers is the Director of the Forensic Science Program at the University of Toronto Mississauga and an Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology.  In her role as a forensic anthropologist, she has completed casework for the Ontario Forensic Pathology Service, the British Columbia Coroner’s Service, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police; including cases such as the search for human remains on the property of serial killer Robert Pickton.

Dr. Rogers’ research program centers on personal identification, including methods of evaluating sex and gender in the human skeleton, assessing ancestry, estimating age, and establishing positive identification.  She is currently partnering with the Oakville and Milton Humane Society to properly document and excavate the pet cemetery; ensuring the careful and respectful recovery of these much loved companions as they are being relocated prior to the sale of the property and move to a larger facility.  Her talk will address the role of a forensic anthropologist in medico-legal investigations and broader community-based projects such as the pet cemetery.
