Current Research and Scholarly Interests
My research interests are broadly in eating and mood disorders. My research program is comprised of two primary lines of research. First, I am interested in elucidating the mechanisms of eating and internalizing disorders, with an emphasis on understanding the neural mechanisms of these disorders. Second, I study novel methods of diagnosis and classification of eating disorders and eating behaviors, especially dietary restraint. A long-term goal of my research is to leverage findings to improve treatments for those with eating disorders.
