Welcome to the Research on Eating Disorders and Suicidality (REDS) Laboratory at Auburn University! Our work examines how biological and psychological risk factors contribute to disordered eating and suicidal behavior. Additionally, our lab’s research explores the high rates of suicidality and self-injury among individuals with eating disorders. Our lab incorporates multiple methodological approaches (e.g., implicit cognition, psychophysiological assessment) and experimental and correlational methods to approach these questions.
Department of Psychology Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion statement:
The Department of Psychological Sciences at Auburn University recognizes, values, and upholds the contributions of students, staff, and faculty from diverse race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender expression or gender identity, age, country of origin, disability, physical stature and body size, religious or spiritual beliefs, socioeconomic class, and political beliefs. We are especially committed to increasing the representation of those populations that have been historically excluded from participation in U.S. higher education as a whole, and the field of psychological sciences, specifically.
Acknowledging the history and effects of systemic racism and discrimination, our department firmly stands for social justice for all people within and beyond our campus, particularly for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
