Research focus

My research themes focus on mechanisms that cause and maintain pathological eating behavior and body image disturbances in at-risk populations, overweight individuals and individuals with eating disorders. To this end, a variety of designs and methods are used, ranging from fundamental studies (eye tracking, EEG, reaction-time tasks) to laboratory-based behavioral studies, ecological momentary assessment (EMA) studies and applied clinical studies (treatment processes and treatment effects).
