Sarah Connolly

Sarah joined DC Research at the beginning of 2024 following her recent graduation from Northumbria University with a Master of Science degree in Health Psychology.

In her role at DC Research, Sarah provides research support across a wide variety of projects, engaging in tasks spanning data analysis, literature and evidence reviews, data cleaning and inputting, survey analysis, web searching, report drafting and other research tasks. Since joining DC Research, Sarah’s work has primarily focused upon projects in the heritage, museums and cultural areas of DC Research’s portfolio, but she has also provided assistance across a range of different projects and sectors.

Sarah’s key research experience lies with primary data collection in Psychology, with her Masters thesis exploring the factors associated with weight control behaviours and mental health in university students, whereby she aimed to inform the implementation of better support for incoming students. Her undergraduate dissertation conducted a quantitative analysis of the relationship between personality traits and addictive behaviours, highlighting key warning behaviours and suggested preventative methodologies.

Sarah’s existing research experience in health and psychology helps to enhance and broaden DC Research’s skills in this area – further supporting and helping to develop our work around health and wellbeing. This includes research about the benefits of engaging in heritage and culture for individual and collective mental health and wellbeing. This is a research area that Sarah is looking to develop for the company.
