GradFlix is a video competition where graduate students have one minute to share their research story for a chance to win prizes and be featured in McMaster’s GradFlix showcase. PhD Candidate, Creighton Avery has been listed as one of 12 finalists, ahead of the Final Showcase on YouTube Premiere, April 5 at 3 p.m.

Creighton’s doctoral research, under the supervision of Dr. Megan Brickley and Dr. Tracy Prowse, explores coming of age in the Roman Empire. Specifically, she focuses on adolescent remains, to understand when children became adults – both physically (by assessing puberty) and socially (by assessing diet). She hopes to understand how aging was experienced within Roman society, including how this may have varied depending on gender, status, and location.
