Advisor: Dr. Tera Fazzino
Research Interests: My current research interests focus on the bridge between substance use and eating disorders. More specifically, I am interested in examining and applying the mechanisms of addiction to better define and assess excessive exercising, overeating, and other reward-seeking behaviors that influence the development and maintenance of disordered eating. Moreover, I am interested in applying technology to better assess and predict clinical outcomes of addictive behaviors and eating pathology.
