Current Research

In general, my research interests center around the mental health of adolescents and young adults, primarily among college student populations. I am particularly interested in epidemiological research and interventions to address eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and help-seeking. I am co-principal investigator of The Healthy Bodies Study, a comprehensive survey of eating and body image issues among college and university student populations.
