Research Interests: I am interested in eating disorders, anxiety and depressive disorders, and access to healthcare.
Long-term career goals: I aspire to explore the role of social media and the fitness industry in the development of eating disorders, the use of pharmaceuticals in eating disorder treatment, the comorbid relationship of eating disorders with anxiety and depressive disorders, and the existing disparities in access to treatment for patients with psychiatric conditions. In addition, I hope to share my love of learning with future generations through education efforts.
