Johanna Warshaw began her career as a graphic designer, having obtained a BFA from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Israel. After a number of years in that field, she developed an interest in Biological Anthropology, and returned to school (the City University of New York) to acquire an MPhil, and then PhD. Her PhD was completed as a member of the New York Consortium in Biological Anthropology (NYCEP). Johanna has been a full-time member of the teaching faculty at the NYU College of Dentistry since 2012.

Johanna's area of anthropological interest is bone microstructural variability in primates and other vertebrates, and how the study of bone in living species can be applied to interpretations of the life history, locomotion and evolutionary relationships among fossil taxa. Johanna is also interested in the science of learning, and best practices in teaching. She is a member of the NYU Dentistry Academy of Distinguished Educators.
