About Sarah Asquith
Sarah did a Masters in Psychology at Leeds Beckett University after an undergraduate degree in English and Art History, and some years working in the manufacturing and retail industries. Sarah's research interests include creativity and mental health. Her PhD studies creativity and wellbeing in young people.
Sarah's PhD research aims to identify the nature of the relationships between different aspects of creativity and mental wellbeing by investigating the influence of individual factors (e.g., IQ) and environmental factors (e.g., engagement in leisure activities) on both. The study takes a combined cross-sectional and longitudinal approach using quantitative and qualitative methods to investigate these factors in three cohorts of young people over a two-year period.
