My primary research interests are related to eating behavior and weight stigma. Many of my projects focus on the psychological and behavioral consequences of common weight loss practices, such as low-calorie dieting and the use of calorie-tracking applications. I'm also very interested in interventions to reduce weight bias, and I am conducting my dissertation research about ways that healthcare providers discuss weight with their patients.
