My research trajectory focuses on examining the influence of psychosocial processes involved in the weight loss process among adult patients, with specific interest in the bariatric surgery process. Out of my own and other scholars work in this area, I hope to develop multi-disciplinary interventions to help improve and maintain weight loss in the adult population. I also have a growing interest in the experience of stigma (e.g., weight, racial, gender) and its impact on patients’ interactions with providers and family members, and their utilization of healthcare.
