Jennifer started as a PhD researcher at the Industrial Ecology department of CML in September 2022.
Jennifer graduated from Utrecht University in 2020 with an MSc in Environmental Sciences, specializing in ecosystem function, environmental change, and sustainable development. Throughout her MSc, she performed environmental systems modelling and spatial analysis research, particularly in relation to biodiversity, future climate projections, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Prior to her MSc, Jennifer pursued an MPH (Master of Public Health) at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. Within the MPH program, she specialized in global environmental health, while also working as a policy research assistant at the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future, a research center focused on environmental and food system sustainability. Jennifer also holds a BA in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Jennifer is working to develop novel impact assessment methods for climate change and eutrophication impacts on functional diversity across terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems. Her research is part of the Horizon Europe project BAMBOO, which aims to understand the environmental impacts associated with non-food biomass trade, inform recommendations for a biodiversity-friendly economy, and develop tools for different stakeholders to identify their biodiversity impacts and pathways to mitigate them.
