Research Interests

  • Social Identity and Health
    Tegan uses a social identity framework to address questions such as why are strong social relationships important for preventing and treating depression? How does stress influence changes in identity, and vice versa? Can we develop treatments for mental illness that are more affordable and less stigmatising, especially for vulnerable members of the community? Which social groups are more likely to influence health behaviours? How do our social relationships affect the spread of contagious disease?
