She conducted extensive research on the elements of nutrition, including protein, cholesterol, and the role of fats in nutrition, lecithin, calcium, 4 amino acids, saccharides, vitamin E, folic acid, and vitamin B. She also concentrated her studies on children, producing articles that explored the relationship of nutrition to a child’s growth. She served as Assistant Dean of the Graduate College (1971-72), Assistant Director of the Iowa Agriculture and Home Economics Experiment Station (1973-75) and an Associate Dean of Home Economic Administration (1975-78).
