Speaker Bio
As a Research Professor at the University of Calgary and a registered psychologist, Dr. Russell-Mayhew is making a profound difference in education and health with her research, bridging the gap between the two to transform how we think and act about weight and wellness. The primary objective of Dr. Russell-Mayhew’s research program is to lead and transform research about weight-related issues like body image (perceptions, attitudes, and experiences about the body), disordered eating (e.g., unhealthy methods of weight change), weight-related disorders (e.g., obesity and eating disorders) and professional conversations and interactions about weight (e.g., weight bias). Her research is informed by clinical and research experience in interdisciplinary team contexts, as well as linkages between her work in academia and committee work with policy-makers and community partners.
