Research and Teaching Interests:

I am the Coordinator of the Clinical Psychology Master's Program and the director for the Clinical/Applied Research (CAR) Group. My research interests lie in the area of eating disorders, and right now I am investigating men's eating disorders, especially muscle dysmorphia. What is muscle dysmorphia, you ask? I'm glad you did. Think anorexia nervosa, but with large men who think they are too small. I am also interested in sport fan behaviors, and have a number of studies going in both areas.
