Submitted Manuscripts and Working Papers

D O'Leary, JJ Gross, & D Rehkopf, (under review). Negative affect mediates the prospective association between household income with weight-gain in adolescent girls.
Combined machine learning and path analysis (n = 2139) of large-scale longitudinal data aimed at identifying the factors that explain the relationship between SES and change in BMI.

D O'Leary, C Hutcherson, A Smith, B Shiv, & JJ Gross. (under review). Socioeconomic status and food choice: A value-based decision-making account.
Series of laboratory and survey studies (n = 8000) showing that low SES participants are more likely to choose unhealthy foods than high SES subjects, particularly when low SES is categorized using subjective measures.

D O'Leary, A Uuysal, D Rehkopf, & JJ Gross. (in preparation). Social status and physical health: The role of negative affect and cognitive reappraisal.
Longitudinal analysis (n = 4000) of the degree to which negative affect mediates the relationship between socioeconomic status and morbidity as well as mortality. In addition, we show that use of cognitive reappraisal moderates this mediation and provides protection against the ill effects (on affect and health) of having low status.

D O'Leary & JJ Gross. (in preparation). Affect regulation improves dietary decision-making under conditions of negative affect.
Series of survey and laboratory studies (n = 1000) showing 1) that fluctuations in negative affect are associated increases in unhealthy food purchases on a college campus, 2) that participants make unhealthy dietary decisions after exposure to a novel, personalized, negative affect induction, 3) and that dietary decision-making improves following instruction in affect regulation.
