Lysanne Michels is a postgraduate research student within Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Lysanne completed her Bachelor’s and Research Master’s degree at Leiden University (The Netherlands), with Honours and with an exchange semester at the University of Waterloo (Canada). During these studies she has been involved with the academic and wider community as a Student Assistant/Ambassador, Teaching Assistant, Guest Lecturer, and Coordinator of Education and Promotion. In 2020, she began her PhD at the University of Southampton.

2020-present: PhD Biological Sciences. University of Southampton, UK.

2018-2020: RMSc Bioarchaeology/Human Osteology. Leiden University, Netherlands.

2016-2018: Honours College. Leiden University, Netherlands.

2015-2018: BA Archaeology (cum laude). Leiden University, Netherlands.

Research interests

Lysanne’s interest is in Skeletal Biology; be this in clinical, archaeological, or forensic settings. With an interdisciplinary background in the biocultural analysis of ancient skeletal remains for evidence of disease and frailty, she focuses on human health throughout time and space. Her current project, in collaboration with the Department of Army Health and Performance Research, seeks to identify whether sex-specific alterations in the vasculature are present during extensive physical training and could underlie the divergent incidence of bone stress injuries.

Research project: Computational biomechanics to identify bone stress fractures due to impaired vascular health
