About J. Alyssa White
Adjunct Instructor

J. Alyssa White is an archaeology doctoral student (DPhil) at the University of Oxford and is researching skeletal evidence for violence from the southwestern Japanese archipelago during the end of the Jōmon hunter-gatherer period through the early Yayoi agricultural period (ca. 2500 BC – 250 AD).

White's Master of Science (MSc) research focused on stable carbon and nitrogen isotopic and radiocarbon analysis of prehistoric hunter-gatherers from Cis- and Trans-Baikal, Siberia, Russia. The aim of her research was to expand upon the extensive chronological assessment and dietary analysis that has been carried out in Lake Baikal by the Baikal Archaeology Project by analyzing individuals from regions previously underrepresented in the study.

She currently teaches Biological Anthropology (ANTH 3300) at Auburn University.
