I am an assistant scientist and licensed clinical psychologist with the Sanford Center for Biobehavioral Research in Fargo, ND. My research focuses on elucidating factors that impact the development and maintenance of eating disorder psychopathology. More specifically, my work focuses on 1) identifying real-time mechanisms of disordered eating behaviors and related symptomatology in the natural environment, and 2) characterizing and evaluating the prognostic value of maladaptive eating behaviors and eating disorder psychopathology toward weight- and health-related outcomes among bariatric surgery patients.
