Ms. Lauren Michelman is a Master’s student at University of Saskatchewan, supervised by Dr. Angela Lieverse. Her research is focused on examining osteological responses during growth and development, primarily Harris line formation, as a result of physiological stress experiences in early life. She is also interested in testing new radiographic methods and standards for Harris line observation and recording while examining and comparing differences in Harris line prevalence in hunter-gatherer groups of the Middle Holocene Cis-Baikal.
