Major Research Interests

Dr. Burke’s research program makes inroads into eating- and weight-related disparities by addressing measurement, models, and interventions for multiply marginalized children, adolescents, and emerging adults. Her interests include the complex interplay among weight status, sociodemographic characteristics, psychological comorbidities, and associated risk factors. Given the persistence of significant eating- and weight-related health disparities, her goal is to continue to inform research and interventions in ethnic minority and economically disadvantaged populations.
