Biography

Project Title: Experiences of loneliness, isolation and work: an investigation of risk/resilience factors and consequences for health and functional outcomes.

Bridget is a PhD student at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience. Her PhD is an interdisciplinary, mixed-methods project investigating the associations between loneliness, social isolation and work, and their implication for mental health and socio-economic outcomes. This project particularly aims to identify gaps in the existing knowledge around loneliness and work, gain detailed insight into experiences of workplace loneliness, and examine the role of loneliness in poor employment outcomes in young adulthood. This project also aims to identify workplace risk factors for loneliness and their implications for workers’ health and wellbeing.

Bridget Bryan joined the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre as a Research Assistant in 2018. After completing a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Psychology and Sociology at the University of Sydney, Bridget completed an MSc in Sociology at the University of Oxford. Before joining King’s she worked in research focusing on workplace mental health and the Australian forensic mental health system at the University of New South Wales and Mental Health Commission of New South Wales, as well as on a project examining museum leadership in the United Kingdom at the University of Oxford.
