Dr Daniel Gaudio

Assistant Professor

Assistant Professor in the Department of Archaeology


I am Assistant Professor in Human Bioarchaeology and Forensic Science.

Throughout my career I have been studying skeletal remains from different time periods (Neolithic, ancient Rome, High Middle Ages, Risorgimento, and our contemporary epoch) and from challenging and taphonomically diverse environments, including glacier, dense forest, and open woodland. I have acted as a Consultant for Archaeological Heritage Offices, in forensic anthropological casework in Italy and in several archaeological conflict scenarios.

I completed my Ph.D. on novel 3D technologies in forensic and biological anthropology at the Laboratory of Forensic Anthropology and Odontology (LabAnOF) of the University of Milan (2014). From 2016 to 2018 I worked on a research project, funded by the Irish Research Council, where I focused on 3D Geometric Morphometrics and DNA analysis of human skeletal remains as a Postdoctoral Fellow in University College of Dublin, Ireland. Since 2018 I have been working in different countries (Canada, Czech Republic, UK) as lecturer in Forensic Anthropology and Bioarchaeology.
