Dr. Voegele’s undergraduate degree in Anthropology from The University of Chicago focused on the anatomy of primates. She received her doctorate in Functional Anatomy and Evolution from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. There she studied the anatomy and evolution of mammals and was trained to teach dissection-based human anatomy to medical professionals. At Geisel, she is an Instructor for the Human Anatomy and Embryology courses, and directs students as they explore and learn human anatomy in the laboratory and in small group sessions. She also teaches the anatomical sciences to Dartmouth College undergraduates.

Dr. Voegele's research uses dissection to investigate mammalian evolution. She also has enjoyed many months as a paleontological fieldworker in the Eocene sediments of the Bighorn Basin of Wyoming, the Fayum Basin of Egypt, the Vastan Lignite Mine in Gujarat, India, and the hills of Laetoli, Tanzania.
