Health Behavior and Technology Lab
Our lab conducts research on topics at the intersection of addiction, obesity, and eating disorders. Specifically, our work is focused the impact of reward-seeking behaviors, such as heavy episodic drinking and binge eating, on health outcomes. Our research is focused on adolescence and young adulthood, which are developmentally sensitive periods that are high-risk for substance use, obesity, and eating disorders. In addition, we are developing mobile photography-based methods for assessing alcohol use and eating experiences in real-time.
