Eliana V. Carraça

Research Associate
Eliana V. Carraça is a Research Associate at Universidade de Lisboa, Faculdade de Motricidade Humana, and a guest Professor at Faculdade de Educação Física e Desporto, Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias, Lisboa, Portugal. She is a clinical exercise physiologist, with a master in exercise and health, and received her Ph.D. in Health and Fitness in 2012. She has also received a Best Master Student award in 2009. Her research revolves around the field of motivational, self-regulatory and behavioral predictors of physical activity, eating behavior and weight management. She is especially interested in the interplay and cross-behavioral regulation between physical activity and eating-self regulation, especially at the mechanistic level. She explores the mediating role of motivational dynamics (based on self-determination theory) and potential interactions with other psychological and non-psychological factors that might contribute to physical activity/exercise function as a gateway behavior for healthy eating. Additionally, she has been involved in the design of health behavior change interventions applying self-determination theory (in overweight/obese women and recreational runners). She has published 24 international peer-reviewed articles (h-index 11; 1356 citations), and was a co-author of 4 international and 2 national book chapters. She is currently the co-coordinator of KoR (Keep on Running) national project, a digital (brief) intervention study designed to increase sustained adherence to recreational running in a naturalistic environment. In the past, she has participated in the SPOTLIGHT project, funded by the European Commission (FP7), and in several FCT-funded projects (the PESO Study, the “Physical Activity and the Self-Regulation of Eating Behavior and Body Weight” project, the Open-Access Repository of Self-Regulation Measures for Exercise, Eating, and Weight Control).
