Jenn’s research focuses on the economic and environmental implications of complex infrastructure systems. For over 15 years, she has studied innovative and integrated water systems, specifically evaluating tradeoffs and synergies between different water-related functions (conveyance and treatment of potable water, recycled water, wastewater, and stormwater) and understanding their interdependencies with other economic sectors, such as energy and food. She is an expert in conducting life-cycle cost assessment (LCCA) and life-cycle assessment (LCA). She has also worked as an engineering consultant, gaining experience designing, operating, and managing construction of environmental remediation systems. Jenn has a BS from the Georgia Institute of Technology and MS and PhD degrees from UC Berkeley, all in Civil and Environmental Engineering.
