Her teaching pedagogy is fundamentally based on respect and engaged, value-based experiential classroom learning that invites reflective practice in the building of professional identity.

Janet's research is focused on giving voice to the person/family touched by Eating Disorders (ED) and its treatment. Her research demonstrates and advocates for the prioritisation of the person/family’s voice to inform therapeutic interventions and for clinicians to develop skills in tailoring treatments to the person/family.

Janet Echelman

Mellon Distinguished Visiting Artist, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
Janet Echelman is an artist who creates experiential sculpture at the scale of buildings that transform with wind and light. The art shifts from being an object you look at, to something you can get lost in.

Her work defies categorization as it intersects across disciplinary boundaries, from fine art, architecture, and urban design, to material science, computer science, and structural and aeronautical engineering. Using unlikely materials from fishnet to atomized water particles, Echelman combines ancient craft with original computational design software to create artworks that have become focal points for urban life on four continents.

Recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, Harvard Loeb Fellowship, Aspen Institute Henry Crown Fellowship, and Fulbright Lectureship, Echelman was named an Architectural Digest Innovator for “changing the very essence of urban spaces.” Her TED talk “Taking Imagination Seriously” has been translated into 35 languages with more than two million views.
