Jade is a postgraduate researcher working from the School of Architecture and the Built Environment at the University of Adelaide. She also works in partnership with the Australian Research Council's Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions 1100-1800, an internationally renowned humanities research centre.
I am a graduate of the University of Adelaide, school of psychology. In 2013 I completed my Bachelor of Psychological Science, going on to obtain a First Class Honours Degree in the same program in 2016. I am currently undergoing my PhD candidature at the University of Adelaide, under the supervision of Dr. Daniel King and Professor Paul Delfabbro. The focus of my research is on Internet Gaming Disorder and the current barriers to treatment.
I am a visiting Research Associate at the Australian School of Petroleum, where I examine the petroleum geomechanics, petrophysics and the tectonic evolution of sedimentary basins in Australia, New Zealand and Middle East. I have been working on the Australian Stress Map and the World Stress Map (WSM) Projects in Australia and Germany since 2012. My research work on the crust stresses developed the most comprehensive understanding of the present-day stress state in Australia to date.
I am researching the pregnancy journey for women with pre-exisiting diabetes and how we can improve pre-pregnancy counselling.

My primary research focus is lucid dreaming. In a lucid dream, the dreamer realises that they are dreaming and can then explore and even control the dream. Lucid dreaming has a wide range of potential benefits and applications such as creative problem solving, treatment for recurrent nightmares and improvement of motor skills through rehearsal in the dream environment (e.g. for elite athletes or people recovering from severe physical trauma).
My research areas include mathematical & statistical modelling in biology and medicine, bioinformatics, statistical genetics, biostatistics and applied mathematics. Specifically, the topics are mainly on classification and cluster analysis of biological sequence or clinical data, modelling and analysis of next generation sequencing (NGS) data, computational molecular evolution and phylogenetics, genetic epidemiology (GWAS/rare variant analysis), gene prediction/finding, and metagenomics.
