Graduate Students

Lindsay Howard, Ph.D.

Lindsay is an Assistant Professor in the department of psychology at Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD. Her research interests are in exploring sociocultural models of disordered eating using ecological momentary assessment (EMA). She believes it is imperative to apply wisdom of variables, such as body-ideal internalization, media exposure, and pressures for thinness to our rapidly changing social environment. Her current projects also aim to examine facets of interpersonal interactions within social contexts that contribute to disordered eating, such as the impact of denial of disordered eating behaviors (i.e., the tendency to lie about or conceal disordered eating behavior). She teaches undergraduate courses on Abnormal Psychology, Human LifeSpan Development, and Behavior Modification and Assessment.

Rachel MacIntyre, Ph.D.

Rachel MacIntyre is a graduate of the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program and is currently an Assistant Professor at Millersville University. At Millersville, she teaches a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses, including Cognitive Therapy. In research, she studies dynamic social influences on adaptive and maladaptive aspects of body image and related health behaviors (e.g., eating, exercise).
