“Medical Geology: The Impact of the Natural Environment on Health in Past Populations from Ireland and Scotland”


Prof. Eileen Murphy, Prof. Jennifer McKinley, Dr. Rebecca Crozier (University of Aberdeen)



Dissertation topic

My research topic focuses on the role of the natural environment and underlying geology in the health status of skeletal populations in Medieval Ireland and Scotland. By examining skeletal indicators of stress for various skeletal populations across Ireland and Scotland, I will attempt to see a correlation between variations in underlying geology and human health.
