Carrie P. Earthman
Ph.D., RD, LD, Professor
Dr. Earthman is an internationally-recognized expert in body composition and energy metabolism, with a focus on complex clinical populations. She has focused on patients who undergo obesity surgery, where body composition changes over time and is linked with the metabolism of vitamin D. She studies malnutrition (implications, assessment, management) in the clinical context, and is particularly interested in vitamin D deficiency in difficult-to-treat populations. Dr. Earthman is also developing noninvasive measures of body composition that could be applied as an element of clinical dietetics practice.
