Research Interests & Projects

My research focuses on physiological adaptations to low energy availability and chronic stress in female athletes and subsequent outcomes of amenorrhea and loss of bone mineral density. I am particularly interested in eating disorders as a risk factor for low energy availability, and I am an active advocate for mental health help-seeking in collegiate athletics.
