My research interests are focused on better understanding of the development, classification, and diagnosis of eating disorders, particularly among children, adolescents, and young adults. I would also like to engage in new research that informs the development of interventions that target disordered eating and co-occurring mental health challenges (e.g., suicidality and depression). I am also interested in the relationship between body dysmorphic disorder and anorexia nervosa.
