Researcher biography

After learning that her grandmother was becoming blind, a young Jessica dreamed of designing devices that would restore her sight. It was this passion for improving people's lives that led Jess to study Electrical and Biomedical Engineering at UQ. In 2017 she graduated with class 1 honours. In July 2018, she started her PhD at UQ. Her PhD is focused towards creating solutions that will assist clinicians in diagnosing and managing degenerative hip joint disorders such as osteoarthritis and femoroacetabular impingement.

In her spare time, Jessica enjoys playing some Johannes Brahms on her clarinet, learning guitar and oboe, playing soccer, futsal, going for bike rides and reading.

Jessica's principal advisor is Dr Shakes Chandra.
