Research:

Gina is new to the anthropology program at UMASS. Her MA research focused on evaluating the effect of weight (specifically obesity) on bone properties through analysis of long bone cross-sectional shape and expression of muscle attachment sites. Her current interests include (but are not limited to) extension of her work into bioarchaeology and bone remodeling theory and process.

To read her MA thesis, please refer to: http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/theses/available/etd-03172009-104918/unrestricted/etd.pdf
