She has recently completed specialist texts for monographs on Roman cemeteries at the head of the Walbrook and the site of Spitalfields market and the post-medieval cemeteries of St. Pancras and St. Marylebone, Westminster. She is also currently contributing to a major monograph for MOLA on the excavation of c. 200 skeletons from the 18th and early 19th-century Royal London Hospital.

As an experienced forensic archaeologist, Natasha provides specialist advice to the City and Metropolitan Police and is co-author of the national standards for forensic archaeology.
Natasha is a guest contributor to undergraduate and post-graduate courses at Birmingham University (who recently appointed her as an Honorary Research Fellow), City University, London Metropolitan University and Christchurch, Canterbury.

Osteological work has also led to involvement in several television programmes, including Time Team and the One Show.
