My research interests focus on body image and eating and weight-related disorders. In particular, I am interested in the effects of sociocultural factors, such as mass media, on body image, eating attitudes and eating behaviors. Recently, I have become interested in the intersection of eating pathology and overweight/obesity and how we can develop interventions that address the spectrum of weight-related issues. In my career, I hope to help bridge the gap between the obesity and eating disorder fields.
