Biography

Kealagh is a PhD student in the School of Psychology at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Her interests lie in understanding how people use information from their body and mind to create their experience of the world. As part of the Youth Wellbeing Study and the Cognitive & Affective Neuroscience Lab, her doctoral research uses both psychophysiology and longitudinal self-report methods to understand how adolescents respond to emotional challenges, and how this response then relates to mental health. Her work is part of the Marden-funded project 'Understanding the puzzling relationship between non-suicidal, and suicidal, thoughts and behaviours' led by Prof Marc Wilson.
