Jade completed her BA (Hons) Interior Design at the Sheffield Institute of Arts followed by an MA in Design (Interiors). Jade has been awarded funding by Research England to explore her Ph.D. topic in the 100-year life and the future home with the aim of enabling older people to lead longer, more productive lives at home.
As a member of the Design Research Group, Jade uses design as a research tool and co-design methods to develop the discussion surrounding how the home environment can effect health and well-being. Jade is also contributing to the development of a home testing device and software used in the home assessment of Parkinsonís disease symptoms. She has developed accessible co-design sessions to work alongside partners with Parkinson's disease.
Jade is the current Unit leader for the Interior Design CP1 and CP3 units (contextualising practice) where she encourages good practice for theory supporting practice and academic research and writing skills.
Jade is currently the Disability Co-ordinator for the Interior Design course and supports students with Personal Learning Plans to ensure the environment is suitable for excellent education.
