Elaine focuses on the effects of vitamin D supplementation among adult patients with tuberculosis (as well as a subset living with human immunodeficiency virus co-infection) in southern India. In a double-blinded randomized control trial, study participants will be randomly assigned to receive different dosages of vitamin D or placebo; biological, immunological, and health indicators will be assessed during the one year follow up period. Her broad research interests include the intersection between tuberculosis, diabetes mellitus, and malnutrition, particularly in resource-limited contexts. Elaine is currently a doctoral candidate in the field of Nutritional Sciences.
