Ms Kristi Urry

PhD Candidate

I am a second year PhD candidate in the School of Psychology. My research interests lay in sexual health (care), LGBT-QIA health, and primary healthcare.

My PhD research project seeks to explore the perceptions and experiences of sexuality and sexual health for three groups of mental health professions: psychologists, psychiatrists, and mental health nurses. The project is being supervised by Prof Anna Chur-Hansen and Dr Carole Khaw. I hope that the research outcomes will contribute to improved professional education and client care.
