My primary research interests are related to eating behavior and weight stigma. Specifically, I’m interested in ways that our beliefs about food and beliefs about weight influence our food choices, as well as ways that experiencing weight stigma complicates these decisions. I’m also very interested in the physiological effects of experiencing weight-based discrimination, such as elevated cortisol levels and inflammation. Currently, I’m working on projects related to stress eating, weight controllability, calorie tracking, and reducing weight bias.
