Lynda Joy Gerry

Psychology Researcher, UNIVERSITY OF AUCKLAND
Lynda Joy Gerry is a psychology researcher investigating empathic skills enhancement and compassion cultivation training facilitated by emerging media technologies like virtual and augmented reality. The aim of her research is to train skills related to cognitive, affective, and behavioral aspects of empathy and interpersonal relationships. Specifically, she works with virtual reality (VR) for first-person perspective taking that captures the perceptual and subjective experiences of creative experts such as musicians and painters. Lynda also incorporates biosensors and mindfulness guidance into her research by using heart-rate variability biofeedback to aid with emotion regulation. Lynda has been a visiting researcher at labs in Germany, Denmark, Australia, Estonia, and Norway. She is currently completing her PhD in Bioengineering through the University of Auckland.
