Zoi Asimakopoulou (MBPsS), Research Assistant     LinkedIn Profile

I am a First class honors Psychology Graduate from the University of Dundee in Scotland. My final year project investigated a dyadic art therapy group intervention for at-risk low attachment relationships. I was part of an art therapy project and supported mothers and infants at risk for a 12-week period. My project also helped in the validation of an existing observational coding tool specifically designed for evaluating the dyadic interaction. I am currently working as research assistant for Dr. Emese Nagy exploring how children relate to music through drawings.

Richard Thomson Keith.
I graduated with a Psychology degree with Honours from the University of Dundee in 2019. I’ve worked in the additional needs field for over 13 years and currently work with children with mental health issues for the NHS. I am a keen guitarist and play in band. For my undergraduate dissertation under the tutelage of Dr Nagy I conducted a study that investigated the effects of musical engagement on mood, approach behaviour and positive affect in a heterogenous sample of individuals with various disabilities. All throughout my working career I have utilised music and music technology to ameliorate communication barriers.
