Weight Loss in Groups: How Leaders and Uncertainty Influence Weight Loss Intentions
I am interested in social identity, leadership, uncertainty, group identification, and public health. In my research, I am examining the preference for different forms of prototypical leadership when people experience uncertainty and how this affects weight loss intentions and health behaviors. With my research I hope to create more effective interventions for a variety of public health issues.
