Fernanda Chardulo Dias De Andrade

I am a fourth-year PhD student in the social psychology program, and I work with Dr. Rick Hoyle. Broadly, I am interested in self-regulation of health behavior. More specifically, I study the role of individual differences in self-regulatory capacity and skills on the pursuit of health goals. I'm also interested in how our salient and valued identities influence the 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, such as physical appearance comparisons, negative academic feedback, and social rejection.
