Behavior Technology Lab


Mission:   To investigate the impact of novel assessment, prevention, and intervention approaches for eating disorders, weight management, and body image disturbance on health behaviors and chronic disease outcomes.


The Behavior Technology Laboratory conducts research on novel approaches for the assessment, prevention, and treatment of eating disorders, obesity, and body image disturbance. This research involves testing the efficacy of community-based, clinic-based, and internet/technologically advanced (e.g. Smartphones, ipad apps, e-health games) interventions for changes in health behaviors.
