Dr. Lynch’s research focuses on the factors that influence dietary and weight management
behaviors. In particular, she is interested in habit formation, strategies, and the role of self-
monitoring in weight management. She also applies life-course theory to understanding how
individuals’ life histories and current lifestyle factors impact their dietary and weight
management behaviors. Her current study uses a mixed methods approach to understand
