Kate Wareham


I have always had an interest in music and psychology since studying with Dr David Nelson at the University of Manchester. I am now studying for a PhD in music psychology at the University of Sheffield having completed my masters with distinction in 2017.

My dissertation focussed on personal music consumption for homeless young people. You can find out more about it here.
