Laura Mitchell moved to Bishop’s University in July 2011 from Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland, where she completed her Ph.D. with Raymond MacDonald. Her main research interests are in the area of music and health, emotion and wellbeing, and in particular the use of music for pain relief. Her first edited text in this area, with Raymond MacDonald and Gunter Kreutz, was published by Oxford University Press in 2012. She has started the first undergraduate class in Psychology of Music at Bishop’s, and is part of their Psychological Health and Wellbeing Research Cluster.
