Graduate Student, Social Psychology (Affiliate)
Broadly, I am interested in the development and maintenance of eating disorders. My current work focuses on factors that may contribute to the development of anorexia, and is aimed at understanding the subjective experience of those with anorexia, as well as mechanisms that may predict restrictive vs. binge eating habits. At InCHIP, I hope to examine ways in which food information contribute to obesity, and hope to someday develop interventions targeted at obesity treatment.
