PORTAL
Founder
Founder of The PORTAL (Prosthetics, Orthotics, Research, Technology & Accessibility Lab) at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), Jade has served as Research & Development Associate and Haiti Project Team Lead for LimbForge, a non-profit specializing in increasing access to quality prostheses for underserved communities throughout the world, and instructs several courses including "3D-Technologies for Prosthetic Applications," an interdisciplinary, project-based class that leverages 3D-printing, scanning and CAD to engage students in facets of prosthetic design. Her interests range from creating simple, body-powered devices to devices which can be actuated by myoelectric and EEG signals. As a current PhD student in the field of Human-Computer Interaction, she also aspires to be integral to software development that serves to increase access to prosthetic, orthotic and adaptive devices worldwide.
