Undergraduate Research

Through the nutrition department at the University of Montevallo, I’ve been involved in several presentations of undergraduate research at the annual Alabama Dietetic Association meeting. In 2017, we completed research on supplement use among college athletes. The next year, I contributed to a review of literature regarding body image among college students. From this review, a study will be sanctioned surveying students on our own campus.

At ALDA 2019, I presented food science research on the effects of egg replacements in blueberry muffins. A Facebook Messenger interactive version of this research can be accessed by following this link: http://www.maramiller.net/blueberry
