Research Interests

My program of research addresses prevention of and intervention for childhood and adolescent obesity and related disorders. I have primarily focused my research efforts on (a) developing and evaluating behavioral weight control programs for children and adolescents, (b) investigating the psychological and social experiences of overweight and obese youth (e.g., peer victimization; quality of life), (c) assessing the utility of innovative technologies in pediatric obesity prevention and intervention, and (d) examining neural processes relevant to weight-related pediatric behavior.
