Research overview

Jenny has research interests in engineering design, with specific focus on human and environmental factors. Current research aligns with the UN Sustainability Goal of zero hunger with the development of artificial bumblebee nest boxes to address pollinator decline and promote food security. The use of Additive Manufacturing (AM) for redistributed manufacture is of particular interest alongside utilising bio-inspired design to mimic the design successes of the natural world.

Jenny has spent 14 years in engineering industry across a variety of sectors including engineering design consultancy, designing playground equipment and latterly designing and realising asset monitoring resilience systems. She achieved Chartered Engineer status in 2018 and is a member, councillor and trustee of the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED).

Jenny is the Equality Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) chair for the School of Engineering and for the Institution of Engineering Designers' EDI committee. In addition she is an active supporter of STEM outreach and regularly encourages children to explore engineering beyond the traditional roles and stereotypes presented.
