Jane Holmstrom specializes in biological anthropology, specifically bioarchaeology. Her primary focus of research is the reconstruction of life history, particularly diet and migration, through stable isotope analysis. She received her B.S. in Business Management in 2009 from Metropolitan State University, a B.A. in Anthropology in 2012 from St. Cloud State University, an M.A. in Anthropology in 2018 from the University of West Florida, and her Ph.D. from the University of Central Florida in 2022. As part of the Laboratory for Bioarchaeological Sciences research team at UCF, Jane’s dissertation research is focused on the isotopic comparison of two Medieval (9th – 13th century AD) Christian cemeteries in southern France – examining how diet, migration, status, and identity intersected with the evolution of the Christian church. Jane is also working on isotopic analysis of a Medieval French Nunnery in southern France. In addition to these projects, Jane has served as the GIS specialist for the Vayots Dzor Fortress Landscapes Project (VDFLP) since 2020.
