Dr. Reich’s research focuses primarily on health behavior in individuals and communities. Her work explores resources designed to aid in the adoption and maintenance of physical activity and healthy eating. Current projects in progress examine the behavior change theory characteristics of mobile apps and the built environmental factors that support healthy behavior in communities. As a teacher-scholar, she also investigates the effectiveness of teaching and learning strategies in the exercise sciences.
