Research Interests
Overweight and obesity are extremely prevalent in the U.S., placing people at increased risk of life-threatening diseases and contributing to significant medical costs. I am greatly concerned about the unhealthy behaviors and co-morbid health issues associated with overweight/obesity. I hope through my research efforts to better understand factors that contribute to excess weight, ways to help people lose weight and keep it off (e.g., diet and activity change interventions), and the consequences of overweight and obesity (e.g., poor health-related quality of life).
