Linda Kaye is Associate Head of Psychology at Edge Hill University. She specialises in cyberpsychology, broadly she seeks to understand how online worlds affect our everyday experiences and behaviour, and the extent to which we can understand human psychology from studying people’s online behaviour. Her overarching research aims are to explore how online settings may promote social inclusion and well-being. A cross-cutting theme of all her research relates to identity and inclusion, and how we can ensure we are supporting an inclusive society via online environments.

Linda is also one of four founding members and now currently Past Chair of the British Psychological Society’s Cyberpsychology Section. This work has resulted in her being involved in a wide range of task groups and policy enquiries. Further, she has her own private consultancy company “The CyberDoctor” in which she works with a range of business clients to help them understand their online consumers from their online behaviour.
