Kerver Research

Primary Research Focus

The Kerver Lab’s program of research broadly aims to study factors that impact the development and maintenance of eating disorder psychopathology. More specifically, our work focuses on identifying real-time mechanisms of disordered eating behaviors and related symptomatology in the natural environment. Our other focus is on characterizing and evaluating the prognostic value of maladaptive eating behaviors and eating disorder psychopathology toward weight- and health-related outcomes among bariatric surgery patients.
