Research Areas


I am a Full Professor in Psychology and joined the Psychology Department at Western in October 2016. I am also an Affiliate Professor in the Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies. My academic training is in experimental and applied social psychology; and I also have clinical training from the scientific and clinical posts held at the Renfrew Center in Philadelphia between my MA and PhD, which is a residential treatment facility for women with eating disorders where I co-developed and implemented an exercise program to facilitate eating disorders treatment. Over the years, my work has spanned and integrated the areas of social, applied, political, and clinical psychology. Currently I am the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Sex Roles, and previously an Associate Editor for Body Image, Journal for Theoretical Social Psychology, Journal of Applied Social Psychology, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, and Psychology of Women Quarterly. I am senior editor of the volume, Self-Objectification in Women: Causes, Consequences, and Counteractions, published by the American Psychological Association. I am a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, Society for the Psychology of Women, Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues, and the Academy for Eating Disorders.
