Joshua received his Bachelor of Science degree from Utah State University in anthropology with an emphasis in biological anthropology and chemistry and biology minors. His undergraduate education included participation in several archaeology field opportunities including an internship with the CRM team at Idaho Power Company. In addition, he also volunteered regularly in the university’s cadaver lab to prepare remains for teaching courses.

He received his Master of Arts degree from Colorado State University in anthropology. His research focused on bioarchaeology following a biocultural approach. His Master’s Portfolio investigated the biological impact of industrialization on late 18th century working class populations via an investigation of bone functional adaptation responses to labor.

In addition to instructing at Colorado State University, Joshua also teaches an Introduction to Forensics course for the Roaring-Fork and Summit County Pre-Colligate Program hosted at University of Colorado Boulder.
