Jessi is a designer, technologist and the founder of Provenance. Provenance facilitates the use of cutting edge digital technologies to make supply chains more transparent. Provenance applies new technologies to help us better understand our material world, with the aim of powering a circular economy and radically increasing transparency in supply chains. Provenance was listed in the Daily Telegraph’s “top ten amazing science and technology innovations” due to their work digitally connecting ‘dumb’ physical things to a highly secure decentralized network.
As a firm Art and Science hybrid, Jessi has a Masters in Engineering from Cambridge University and Design from the Royal College of Art. Across both the US and Europe, she has worked with many brands on technology and digital design strategy including Adidas, The Four Seasons, The Guggenheim Museum, Will.I.Am, British Airways and Louis Vuitton. She is an associate researcher at the Intel Institute for Sustainable Cities and recently paused her Computer Science PhD to pursue Provenance full time as the interest in the project was getting too much to ignore.
