Jess joined Team in February 2016 as a consultant in the human factors group. Jess is responsible for planning and implementing formative and summative studies both directly for our clients and as part of our product development process.

“I have experienced first-hand how design and usability of a device can influence the end product. As a human factors consultant, I am keen that the device user is considered throughout the product life cycle to ensure maximum benefit of the product to the user.”

“Team combines a great environment with knowledgeable and committed people who are keen to deliver a pragmatic approach to addressing the client’s needs.”

Jess has over 10 years’ experience in the in-vitro diagnostics and medical devices industry. During this time she worked in product and clinical development in a start-up medical device company. She has experience of all parts of the product development cycle – from verification testing of diagnostic devices using biological samples to liaising with the FDA on 510(k) submissions and management of pre-clinical, clinical and usability studies.

She has a BSc in Chemistry and an MRes in Biomolecular Science from the University of York. She also has a PhD in Biotechnology from the University of Cambridge.
