Summary of Work:

My research program aims to identify for whom risk factors are most strongly linked to eating disorders and to elucidate causal mechanisms that contribute to eating disorder maintenance. I examine four domains of individual differences: interpersonal influences, components of binge-eating, gastrointestinal symptoms, and weight history.
