Ph.D. student, Washington University in St. Louis

Fade began his undergraduate career at John Carroll University with a strong interest in law and political issues. However, after taking social psychology, Fade became actively interested in the field of psychology. In fact, he decided to pursue a second degree (with the first in political science) in psychology, with a general concentration. After graduation from John Carroll in 2008, Fade secured a research position at Duke University, acting as the research coordinator of the Duke Interdisciplinary Initiative in Social Psychology. After three years at Duke, Fade decided to pursue graduate work in psychology and applied to doctoral programs. He ultimately decided to attend Washington University in St. Louis’s doctoral program in psychology, with an emphasis in social and personality psychology. He is in the second year of the program, with a strong interest in political decision-making and stereotyping.
