Kristy Beede

The Tactile Research Laboratory at NAMRL

    Kristy Beede, a Laboratory Assistant, worked in the Tactile Research Lab at the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory from December, 2001 through August of 2004. She received her Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Rider University in Lawrenceville New Jersey in 1999. During her service with the Tactile Research Lab, she tested more subjects in more studies at NAMRL than all of the other laboratories, combined.  She continued testing subjects in several studies initiated by Chris Brill, as well as starting several new studies on vibrotactile localization on the abdomen.  When Anja Schwab arrived at the laboratory, Kristy took primary responsibility for testing subjects in Ms. Schwab's experiments on the perception of vibrotactile apparent movement generated on the abdomen with several modes of stimulation using a number of tactile arrays. 

   While working at the Tactile Research Lab she was also taking courses in the evenings towards her Master's Degree in  Industrial/Organizational Psychology at the University of West Florida in Pensacola.  The thesis for that degree was completed in the Fall of 2004, shortly after her return to her home in the Philadelphia area where she is working in research data analyses and interpretation.
