Dr Amanda Krause

Amanda Krause completed her PhD in Psychology at Curtin University in 2014.  Her PhD research was developed in a social psychological framework and employed a range of quantitative methods to address three aspects of everyday music listening: how music is accessed and selected (with emphasis on notions of control and choice), individual responses to music in terms of mood and perceived effects, and how music practices are conducted on social media.  Having worked in the School of Psychology and Speech Pathology at Curtin University as a Research Associate for two years, she now currently works as a Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne.  


Amanda is an active member of the Australian Music & Psychology Society; European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music; Society for Education, Music, and Psychology Research; Society for Music Perception and Cognition; International Society for Music Education; and the American Psychological Association.
