Full name: Dyah Prastiningtyas
Last education: Master of Science in Human Osteology & Funerary Archaeology
Nationality: Indonesian

I am a hardworking, a perfectionist, and a fast learner with ability to be meticulous in details. Great interest in human palaeopathology, bioarchaeology, human osteoarchaeology, and field anthropology of mortuary behaviour. Field experience in archaeological excavation and experiences with human skeletal remains identification within archaeological context.

I am very passionate on topics of palaeopathology, forensic archaeology, and palaeodemography. I have experience working as an independent researcher providing assistance to those in need of recognition, determination, and analysis of skeletal human remains within archaeological contexts. Though majorly working with archaeological remains, I am still willing to include forensic remains onto my working experience.

I am also a part-time translator for ENGxIND v.v., specializing on subjects of archaeology, history, culture, social, and anthropology. My translation service (samples, rates, & agreements) is based upon request, may be addressed via e-mail correspondence.

Currently, I operate and run a craft supply store.
