Dr Jenny Underwood is senior lecturer and Higher Degrees by Research coordinator in the School of Fashion and Textiles at RMIT University. Her research is practice based and inter-disciplinary. She explores advanced digital technologies to augment textile craft based practices. Parametric design, embodied interaction and textile fabrication methods, such as 3D knitting, are being brought together to develop integrated, automated and scalable approaches. Through the material surface, ornamental pattern and structural form converge and opens up possibilities to imagine and realise new material structures and sensory experiences.
