Dr. Rade earned her M.S from the Psychology in the Public Interest program and her Ph.D. from the Applied Social and Community Psychology program at North Carolina State University. Dr. Rade takes an interdisciplinary approach to her research that draws from community psychology, social psychology, and criminal justice. Her research focuses on (1) reducing barriers and facilitating community reentry after justice system involvement, with an emphasis on stigma and discrimination based on having a criminal record; and (2) bolstering community-based resources and cultivating supportive community collaborations for formerly incarcerated persons and their families.
