Hallie R. Buckley is a New Zealand bioarchaeologist and professor at the University of Otago.[1]

Career[edit]

Buckley completed her PhD at the University of Otago in 2001, with a thesis titled Health and disease in the prehistoric Pacific Islands. She then joined the faculty at Otago, and was appointed a full professor in 2017.[2]

Buckley's research involves the chemical, bio-chemical and DNA analysis of human and animal remains. She has worked extensively at the archaeological site of Teouma, but her highest-profile work to date was on St John's Cemetery in Tokoiti, near Milton. The cemetery, holding mainly the remains of first-generation immigrants from the United Kingdom buried between 1860 and 1926, had already been extensively researched by a local community group. Buckley's team examined remains from unmarked graves and used a range of scientific techniques to match them with historical records.[3][4][5][6][7][8] As of 2018, she was planning a similar project on the Chinese cemetery at Lawrence.[9][10][11][12]
