Jenny Gu is a final year PhD student at the University of Sussex, joint funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SPFT). Her research interests include understanding how mindfulness-based interventions improve mental health and wellbeing. She has recently started to explore the measurement of compassion and mindfulness and how this contributes to our understanding of these processes (e.g.,sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0272735816300216 and psycnet.apa.org/journals/pas/28/7/791.pdf). Jenny is currently working on developing a new self-report measure of compassion designed to assess compassion for both the self and others.
