Personal profile


Jane-Heloise is an interdisciplinary researcher in digital technologies for museums and cultural heritage; 3D visualisation, and medieval buildings archaeology. She was project lead on the 2016 Associate Investigator project 'Emotions3D: Bringing Digital Heritage of Emotions to Life' at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (Europe, 1100-1800) (CHE). She co-convenes the national 'Heritage, History and Affective Emotions Research Cluster’, for CHE; and was a co-founder of AVRL (Accelerated Virtual and Augmented Reality at UWA), established to promote professional development and networking opportunities for industry and research staff in virtual and augmented reality. 

Jane-Heloise completed her doctorate in Medieval Studies at the University of York (UK) in 2014, which examined the re-use of Roman-British material culture following the Norman Conquest. Her forthcoming monograph, 'The Roman Material Past in Anglo-Norman England', will be published by Boydell and Brewer in 2020. She has taught and published across a range of disciplines in heritage, history and archaeology, and holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters in Medieval Studies, from the University of Western Australia. She is excited by the potential for emerging visualisation technologies to change the way we study and interpret the past, and is deeply committed to outreach and education for history.
