Dr. Jen Ballie

Dr. Jen Ballie is the Research Manager at V&A Dundee and a Researcher at the University of Dundee.

Jen's journey began with textile design, but over time has organically become more interdisciplinary, drawing upon the fields of user experience, interaction and service design.

Within a world proliferated with too much stuff, Jen's passionate about the role and responsibilities of the design professional and seeks to explore how we can add value to our everyday lives through design. Through an inclusive approach to practice, she has experience of collaborating with other designers, citizens, NGOs, SMEs and big brands, including: IDEO; Oxfam; Stella McCartney; Marks and Spencer; ASOS; Zero Waste Scotland; and the Danish Fashion Institute.
