Georgia Potter

Georgia Potter is the project coordinator for CHARGE, a binge eating treatment study for veterans run by Dr. Kerri Boutelle at the Center for Healthy Eating and Activity (CHEAR) at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). In her work at CHEAR, Georgia hopes to develop more effective therapy for binge eating disorder and obesity by improving participant sensitivity to internal hunger/satiety signals and decreasing participant responsiveness to learned food cues. Prior to CHEAR, she worked at the UCLA Eating Disorders and Body Dysmorphic Disorder Research Program where she used neuroimaging to investigate aberrant visual processing pathways in body dysmorphic disorder and reward circuitry in anorexia nervosa. She has also worked with Dr. Carol Peterson at the Minnesota Center for Eating Disorders Research helping to test a novel therapy for binge eating disorder. She received her B.A. in Psychology and minor in Global Health from UCLA in 2018.
