Dr Fiona Kerr

Thought leader in the neuroscience of human connection

Dr Fiona Kerr is Industry Professor of Neural and Systems Complexity for the University of Adelaide. She combines a PhD in cognitive neuroscience and systems engineering with early qualifications in Anthropology and Psychology to examine human connectivity, and how this changes with technological inter-mediation. Her work examines the amazing dynamics of human interaction in such things as neurogenesis, neural synchronization, complex problem solving, leadership and flourishment, and she has just finished a two year study on the neurophysiological impact of human touch and eye gaze on healing and trust.

Fiona is an international speaker on questions around how we shape each other, how technology shapes us, and how we should shape technology for a human centric future. In June she was appointed to Finland’s new steering committee to design their AI program for the future.
