Our speaker is Jenny Tillotson who directs the Scensory Design initiative, and a Visiting Scholar at the University of Cambridge. Motivated to control her own bipolar condition, she developed wearable sensory stress management tools that detect a person’s mood swings and emit a natural scent designed to prevent a relapse.
More on Tillotson: She has exhibited internationally, published in science and design journals, consulted for NIKE, Unilever, Intel, and Toyota and worked on projects with Philips, The North Face, Adeline Andre haute couture and International Flavours & Fragrances. She recently received a London Fusion Award to commercialize her wearable technology, eScent.
