Dr Lakrista Morton

MA (Hons), PhD

Research Fellow



I graduated with a MA (Hons) degree in Psychology from the University of Edinburgh in 2010 and started working as a researcher at the University of Aberdeen in 2012. I worked on projects exploring the neurocognitive effects of exercise and on a feasibility study of an intervention delivered by General Practitioners for patients with persistent (“medically unexplained”) physical symptoms. I started my PhD in October 2015, supported by the Centre for Musculoskeletal Health and Work under the supervision of Professor Gary Macfarlane and Professor Marijn de Bruin. This work explored how perceptions of back pain influence how individuals respond to and manage their pain. I successfully defended my thesis in 2019 and I am now working as a research fellow for the Centre for Musculoskeletal Health and Work. I am contributing to several projects which aim to understand the impact of musculoskeletal conditions on people’s work and which also aims to support people with their work.
