About Me


My name is Anne Austin and I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford university in the History department. I received my Ph.D. in the interdepartmental program of Archaeology at UCLA. My research focuses on using human skeletal remains in conjunction with art and texts to understand ancient Egyptian culture. Currently, I’m researching how health and disease affected the village community of Deir el-Medina during the New Kingdom period.

I received my B.A. from Harvard University in Anthropology, and M.A. and C.Phil. from UCLA in the Interdepartmental Program of Archaeology. I was born and raised in Dearborn, Michigan where I gained an appreciation for the sport of fencing. I fenced from age 10 through college, where I had the honor to be the co-captain of Harvard’s Women’s Fencing Team.
