Jakki Bailey
Research Interests

Dr. Bailey examines the psychological implications of immersive virtual reality (VR) on child development, and is currently studying VR's influence on children's cognitive skills and social responses. Her past research has included studying how technology affects behavior change such as through Internet-based programs to reduce the risk of mental disorders and leveraging VR to promote pro-environmental behaviors among adult populations. In addition, she has used VR to test some of the mechanisms behind embodiment's influence on perception.
