Dr. Jenny Thomas: Senior Associate
Jenny is a specialist in evidence-based design and evaluation. She studies the relationship between people and their environment to inform the design and use of spaces and buildings. She also conducts evaluation of process, particularly in relation to the development and use of learning and healthcare environments.
"Jenny Thomas ran a full day's workshop for me at Kearsley Academy with students aged 9-15. Jenny's excellent organisational skills and easy manner with the students ensured the workshop went really well. The outcomes achieved have helped influence design decisions and served as an excellent introduction for students to understand how they could contribute to the building of their new school."
