Janet Monge has done fieldwork in many locations in Europe, Kenya and Australia. Her primary interest is in the development of methodologies to preserve and broadcast datasets to the physical anthropology community using Computed Tomography, traditional radiology, and human dental micro-anatomy as well as in the distribution of the highest quality castings of human fossils to Universities and Museums all over the world. An example of this work is The Radiographic Atlas of the Krapina Neandertals which she published with Alan Mann. Dr. Monge is also Keeper of Skeletal Collections at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Philadelphia. Her dedication to undergraduate research was rewarded with a grant to develop the Museum in Philadelphia as a national center for Native American student research.
