Focus: To investigate the impact of technologically advanced programs for eating disorders, weight management, and body image disturbance on health behaviors.
The Behavior Technology Laboratory conducts research on behavioral 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 mobile-based (e.g. Smartphones, ipad apps, e-health games) interventions for changes in health behaviors.
