Julia Sponholtz

Degree Program: MA


I am a master’s student studying paleoethnobotany under Dr. Katherine Chiou. I graduated with a BA in Anthropology and Spanish and a BS in Biology from the University of Alabama in 2020. During undergrad, I focused on bioarchaeology, researching the measurement data from the UA osteology collections and taking part in field schools in Ireland and Georgia. I have also participated in the Human Behavioral Ecology Research Group (HBERG) since 2017, and I have worked in a biology lab studying fish eggs. I am interested in researching health and diet in past peoples.
