Carolyn works in the area of health assessment, developing new analytical methods and reference materials for the determination of vitamins, vitamin metabolites, and marker compounds in clinical, dietary supplement, and food matrices. Carolyn began her career at NIST as an ODS postdoctoral associate focused on the determination of vitamin D and vitamin D metabolites in human serum and dietary supplements. Carolyn has also been involved in the development of methods and measurement of fat-soluble vitamins in numerous clinical and food SRMs, and assists with the Health Assessment Measurements Quality Assurance Program (HAMQAP). Carolyn is also currently a member of the JCTLM Database Working Groups for Metabolites and Substrates and Vitamins and Micronutrients.
