The science of finding unmarked graves

Katie Corcoran, a Ph.D. student in anthropology at the University of Tennessee and a grad intern in the Geographic Information Science and Technology research group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, will be the guest speaker at the Friends of ORNL luncheon Nov. 12. The gig starts at 11 a.m. with social time, lunch at 11:30 (available from Soup Kitchen at $8 per), and the talk at noon.

Corcoran will talk about the remote detection of unmarked graves. She’s involved in research that utilizes technology to study terrain and factors that can help identify the precise location of unidentified burial sites.

The FORNL lunch meeting is held at the UT Resource Center, 1201 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
