Research Expertise

Research Interests

I use qualitative and arts-based methods to approach issues from a critical health psychology lens. My research primarily focuses on eating disorders, body image, and embodiment, often through story. I have also conducted research at the intersection of weight stigma and reproductive health. Broadly, my work explores bodies in the world--what it means to be embodied and engage in food and exercise practices in a world that holds very specific dictates around what it means to "be healthy." I am also interested in lived experience/patient-driven care and co-design across mental health and for eating disorders in particular, in e-health technologies, and in social justice informed approaches to research, treatment, and advocacy in mental health.
