Cafe Scientifique Orlando is a gathering of scientifically-inclined people in Central Florida, who meet at a cafe, coffee house, pub, or nonacademic location to discuss events and ideas in the world of science. We enjoy beer and wine, and we use plain language to talk about extraordinary ideas.
Forensic Anthropologists assist medical examiners and law enforcement agencies with their expertise with skeletons and archaeological field-methods. Dr. Schultz will discuss different types of information revealed through the analysis of human skeletal remains, and the contributions to criminal investigations of forensic anthropology.
Dr. John Schultz, an Associate Professor of Anthropology at UCF, specializes in the application of ground-penetrating radar methods in forensic and archaeological contexts, taphonomy of commercial cremations and of skeletal remains from historic contexts. Dr. Schultz also works with local law enforcement agencies on the search, recovery, and identification of human skeletal remains. He has worked on a number of high-profile cases including the Casey Anthony case as an expert witness. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Florida in 2003. He has published many articles, book chapters and books including Forensic Recovery of Human Remains: Archaeological Approaches (CRC Press, 2005; 2011). Dr. Schultz has been featured on the Discovery Channel’s series, “Mummy Autopsy.” He teaches Human Biological Diversity, Forensic Anthropology, Human Osteology, Advanced Forensic Anthropology, and Archaeological Sciences. He has received awards for both teaching and research and funding from the National Institute of Justice among other agencies.
