Dr Diana Cardenas

Postdoctoral Fellow

I am trained in social psychology, having completed my Ph.D. in psychology at Université de Montréal in 2017. I was post-doctoral fellow at ERCOMER in Utrecht University until november 2019. I am currently a post-doctoral fellow with Katherine Reynolds at Australian National University, working on the School Climate and Identification project.

Research interests

My interests are: testing how behavioral participation increases identification with groups (in migrants, university students, and more recently, students in their schools); understanding the relation between new cultural identity and cultural identity of origin; understanding how groups put pressure on its members and its effect on identity processes.
