Jade completed her PhD in 2018 with the School of Architecture and Built Environment, The University of Adelaide. Her research work focuses on representations of urban and architectural space, particularly in the early modern period, and how they interact with and are mediated by emotion, both collective and individual. 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.
Jade is a member of the ‘History, Theory and Culture’ research cluster with the School of Architecture and Built Environment; and also the ‘Space, Cities and Emotion’ international research cluster with the Centre for the History of Emotions.

My current project explores the role of emotion in representations of city spaces in the early modern period. Focusing on the city space of London between 1580 and 1730 and explores how ideas associated with particular places shaped the emotions, identities and social status of its inhabitants. Seeking to understand how city spaces and socially-constructed emotions constituted and influenced one another, it uses historical source material to understand how emotionally-laden representations of the suburbs located it as ‘other’.
