Jane entered UniSA’s academy in 2009 combining her professional background in design practice, executive leadership, and public service within the South Australian government. In 2010 she founded Match Studio. Match Studio has become recognised as an inspiring studio-based model for cross and inter-disciplinary teaching and research, focusing on client/industry linked problem-based learning (PBL).
