Cristina Harney


I am currently conducting my PhD in Music Psychology in the School of Psychology and the School of Music. 

Previously, I completed an MSc in Psychological Approaches to Health and BSc in Psychology, both of which were based in the School of Psychology at the University of Leeds.

Research interests

As part of my PhD I am focussing on music listening interventions to improve wellbeing, specifically anxiety. 

I have also been involved in other research including, qualitative exploration of music in the everyday life of female students, music listening and pain perception and involuntary musical imagery.

I am a member of the music psychology research group based within the Music department at the University of Leeds, more information can be found here:
