Fernanda Chardulo Dias De Andrade
I am a first-year PhD student in the social psychology program, and I work with Dr. Rick Hoyle. Broadly, I am interested in the relationship between identity and self-regulation. More specifically, I am interested in how salient and valued identities influence people's valuing and pursuit of health goals.
Before coming to Duke, I earned a master’s degree in experimental psychology from Towson University in Maryland. There, I researched the role of individual differences in how people respond to threats to self-esteem, including physical appearance comparisons, negative academic feedback, and social rejection.
