Ms. Muschal has 10 years of professional experience including supervisory roles working in museums where she educated the public on science and history and was entrusted with research and artifact handling. She has experience working on sites with both human and faunal remains and has been trained to identify and distinguish both. Ms. Muschal has been trained to build a biological profile on an individual which allows her to estimate sex, ancestry, age, stature, pathology, trauma, and taphonomy from skeletal remains which can be used in bioarchaeologal and forensic contexts.
