Biography

Dr Jeanne Tan

Jeanne Tan is Chief Operating Officer of the Laboratory for Artificial Intelligence in Design (AiDLab) and Associate Professor of Design at the Institute of Textiles & Clothing, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Jeanne’s work investigates the interface of design and technology. She often utilizes textiles and fashion as a communicative platform, integrating traditional craft and engineering as the syntax of the creation’s narrative. Her research interests include intelligent material design, interactive textiles for well-being, hybrid design processes and smart wearables.

 

Jeanne’s research is presented in non-traditional ‘body of work’ formats to clearly articulate the multi-faceted perspectives of interdisciplinary research.  She was a key member of the steering committee and contributor for HKPolyU’s RAE 2020 submission under the Creative Arts, Performing Arts & Design Panel (UoA38), which achieved double full scores for impact case studies and research environment with an increase of 31% to 55% for 3- and 4-stars outputs. 

 

Jeanne’s research had involved working collaboratively with institutions such as Hong Kong Sheng Kong Hui Welfare Council, Society of Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention, HK, Humansa (New World Development) with industry sponsorship from TSE and Theory. Her designs had been internationally exhibited at venues such as Victoria and Albert Museum, UK; London Design Week 2018, Museum Fünf Kontinente, Germany and Today Art Museum, China. Jeanne is often asked to speak about her research at venues and events such TedX, the Royal College of Art, UK; Parsons School of Design, USA and Hongik University, Korea. Recent research grants include Quality Education Fund (HKD$1.49 Million), Laboratory for Artificial Intelligence in Design, funded by Innovation and Technology Fund (HKD$4.2 million) and Create Smart Initiative (HKD$1.24 million). She actively engages with international creative communities and the general public via invited designer residencies. Her design work had been featured in international and regional media such as Harper’s Bazaar, WGSN and Xinhua News. As a design consultant, Jeanne works with companies and organizations to implement fashion, textile and creative education solutions. Her consultancies include LVMH Group (Celine, Givenchy, Kenzo, Loewe, Marc Jacobs), Nike, Alibaba, Fashionary, Kiabi, CLP Power Hong Kong Limited, The Hong Kong SAR Government (EMSD) and The Hong Kong Red Cross.
