Jennifer Peavey – MID ’16

Jennifer Peavey [MID ’16] shares her recollections of working with Sharon Joines in her REDlab. The summer of 2014 was a pivotal summer for the RED (Research in Ergonomics and Design) Lab and Jennifer Peavey. This was her chance to learn about design research. The project produced a prototype human body simulator for collecting data on shoulder injuries of ultrasonic technicians. The results inspired Hanes to sponsor projects on torso simulators for testing sports bras. At the same time, the REDLab was remodeled to be more agile for changing times, which led to sponsored research on work and collaboration. In the end, Jennifer realized it was a journey of growth as they “trusted the process”. Listen on Soundcloud
