Lauren A. Fowler, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Scholar

Washington University in St. Louis (WU)

My research involves assessing and developing interdisciplinary models of health-related cognitions and behaviors to improve weight-related outcomes and reduce health disparities through the examination of health determinants (i.e., biological, psychological, social, and health systems factors) and interventions. I have a particular interest in examining the use of mobile technology as assessment and intervention tools, and investigating the influence of social media on health behavior. My research has also focused on the social cognitive processes that determine health decision making and behavior and poor outcomes following weight-loss surgery.
