Eliza Warren, M.S.

WarrenBiography

Eliza Warren (nicknamed “Ellie”) started the Clinical and Health Psychology Ph.D. program at the University of Florida in the fall of 2014. She graduated magna cum laude from Brigham Young University in the spring of 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise & Wellness, with a minor in Psychology.  She is in the Medical/Health track and works as a Graduate Research Assistant under the mentorship of Dr. Michael G. Perri.  Eliza is also doing the joint Clinical and Health Psychology/Master’s of Public Health degree program, with her public health concentration in Social and Behavioral Sciences.  She is also a certified personal trainer, and loves exercising, doing yoga, hiking, and bicycling, and enjoys art, music, and reading.

Research/Clinical Focus

Eliza is interested in mind/body health and fitness, weight management, physical activity, eating disorders, addictive behaviors, and self-worth and self-efficacy. She is primarily interested in studying these topics as they relate to girls and women.  She wrote her master’s thesis on improvements of physical activity in different doses of a behavioral weight-loss intervention.  Career-wise, Eliza plans to work as a clinician, researcher, and professor (but maybe not all at once).
