My research interests are in the areas of eating disorders and obesity. Specifically, I examine the interaction of genetic and environmental factors on eating behaviors. I am particularly interested in understanding more about environmental factors that influence expression of genetic predispositions to eating problems. I also am interested in the role of culture on eating behaviors, and in developing culturally competent interventions to promote healthy eating and exercising behaviors.
