Research Interests

The Klump lab studies the etiology of eating disorders with an emphasis on genetic and neurobiological risk factors. Dr. Klump is particularly interested in understanding developmental differences in these risk factors across adolescence and adulthood, with a particular emphasis on the role of gonadal hormones and comorbid traits (e.g., personality traits) and disorders (e.g., mood and anxiety disorders). She approaches these research questions using a translational scientific framework that includes both human and animal models of eating disorder development.
