Kima Cargill, Ph.D.
Dr. Cargill also serves as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs & Planning in the UW Graduate School.
I am a psychologist who studies food, nutrition, and overeating. Existential and psychoanalytic psychology inform my teaching, scholarship, and clinical work.
My current work examines how overeating is partly influenced by living in an affluent culture focused on consuming. I view appetite as not only biological, or for food, but as a broader desire to consume (material goods, luxury experiences, food, medications, alcohol, etc.)
