Our research broadly investigates factors associated with disordered eating behaviors, ranging from excessive dietary restriction to uncontrollable over-eating. Current studies examine relationships among intrapersonal and interpersonal etiological and maintenance factors for disordered eating, with particular attention toward employing novel technologies that enhance the accuracy of psychological assessment. Ongoing studies also address personality functioning, "fat talk," obesity stigmatization, and the cross-cultural measurement equivalence and validity of eating disorder measures.
