2.	How to detect and report criminal activity 
3.	How platforms help criminals operate online
4.	The laws governing cyberspace and efforts to reform them

My name is Dr. Damien Huffer. I am an osteologist, forensic anthropologist and interdisciplinary scholar of the human remains trade, as well as a co-founder of the Alliance to Counter Crime Online. I have a PhD in Bioarchaeology (the study of human skeletal remains within their cultural context) from the Australian National University. Currently, I am ACCO's Director of Educational Programs and an honourary affiliate of the School of Social Sciences, University of Queensland, in Brisbane. I have taught at the collegiate level for over five years and have participated several times in the "Skype a Scientist'' program, in which scientists share their research and career trajectory with classrooms of all ages around the world. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Stockholm University, and before that, at the Smithsonian Institution's Museum Conservation Institute/Division of Anthropology. One aspect of my work in both jobs was to serve as a subject-matter expert on human remains smuggling investigations and assist with a program to familiarize new law enforcement agents with how museum-based scientific and collections research could aid their work. I have written and presented extensively on the antiquities and human remains trade, archaeology, museum studies, and forensic science. I am passionate about helping young scientists explore the fields of forensic science and archeology.
