Scattered Episode 04: Interview with Pamela Mayne Correia

Pamela Mayne Correia is a Forensic Anthropologist with 30 years’ experience. She is one of three Forensic Anthropologists on contract to the Province of Alberta. She specializes in cremated remains and currently works at the University of Alberta. In this episode we talk about:

  • what attracted Pam to and sustained her interest in forensic anthropology
  • the difference between cremains and cremated remains
  • how the role of Forensic Anthropologist has evolved and may continue to evolve
  • the ethics of using human remains and engaging in more transparent conversations regarding forensic investigations
  • the feedback loop of research
  • That trails used by canids could also be used for the recovery of remains
  • how the Forensic Anthropologist at the scene can act as a “font of knowledge”, “bridge”, or “liaison” to the research world for those searching.
