The Black Dog Institute

Dr Priya Vaughan is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Black Dog Institute and at the Knowledge Translation Strategic Platform at SPHERE. With a research background in social anthropology, Priya takes an interdisciplinary approach to health research, utilising arts-based and socially informed methodologies, knowledge translation strategies, and interventions. Recent research has focused on embodied experiences of anxiety, the mental health impacts of Covid-19, and the evaluation of arts-based interventions for mental health and of research dissemination projects. Priya is currently working on an ARC funded project which uses body mapping to learn from women with disability, experience of mental distress, and/or refugee background about their experiences of, and ways of coping with, stigma and discrimination.
