Jaime Ginter

Professor

Jaime Ginter is a physical anthropologist with research interests in skeletal biology, bio-archaeology, and forensic anthropology. She obtained degrees from the University of Alberta (B.A.), the University of Western Ontario (M.A.), and the University of Toronto (Ph.D.). Her research explores skeletal and archaeological evidence for lifestyle change among South African Later Stone Age hunting and gathering populations and prehistoric Ontario First Nations groups. She has recently applied her interests in health and ageing to a research project that examined the vitamin D levels of older adults of diverse ancestry living in the Greater Toronto Area.
