Personal profile

Research interests

My primary research interests focus on helping young people feel better about their bodies and make healthier eating and physical activity choices to prevent eating disorders and obesity. I also have a growing interest in yoga and body image, obesity, and eating disorders and am interested in expanding my research in this area.
