Interests

My research interests center around eating disorders. In particular, I am interested in the role that personality traits may play as etiological or maintenance mechanisms in individuals with eating disorders. I am also interested in exploring the mechanisms of symptom change in individuals with eating disorders and determining what factors are related to the premature termination of treatment. In addition, I am interested in the dissemination of empirically supported treatment and the role that self-help and guided self-help treatments can play in this endeavour.
