About Me

Brent croppedHello, my name is Brent Curdy. I am a second year graduate student in the Department of Sociology at Duke University. I am interested in the ways that people make sense of their social and physical surroundings and the ways people decide what things are most important to them. My research interests include social psychology, affect control theory, identity theory, sociology of religion and gender. I am also an Arabic linguist and FLAS (Foreign Language and Area Studies) Fellow for 2013-2014.

I have experience with Qualtrics and am currently writing tutorials to help researchers design custom surveys.
