Kailey received her B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Tennessee, USA. There she worked at the Dr.Bill Bass Forensic Anthropology Center as a intern. Kailey received her MSc in Human Osteology and Funerary Archaeology from the University of Sheffield, her dissertation involved looking at how slight changes in facial reconstruction measurements could alter the weight and appearance of an individual’s face. Her second MSc was obtained in Forensic Anthropology from Liverpool John Moores University with her dissertation focusing on the repeatability of facial reconstruction by hand.

Kailey’s research here at the University of Dundee will focus on the investigation of hard and soft tissue relationships of the craniofacial complex using geometric morphometric techniques. The intention of the study is to establish new standard(s) for approximating soft tissue facial details (such as the nose, mouth, ears, etc.) from the underlying bony structures of the full face.
