My proposed dissertation research involves a bioarchaeological examination of vitamin D deficiency in Roman Italy. I hope to examine some of the factors that may be contributing to the incidence of this condition as well as influencing individuals disease experience, including vitamin D status during pregnancy, cultural factors affecting nutrient intake and sunlight exposure, and potential interactions with tuberculosis.
