Jennifer is an energy geographer that studies how material, political and environmental processes interconnect and with what effects in the context of energy development. She works on unconventional and renewable energy systems in both domestic and international contexts. The main theoretical lens she employs in her research is political-industrial ecology, an emerging sub-field of geography that aims to embed resources flows within their broader historic, economic and political contexts. An overarching goal of her research, teaching and service is to develop strategies for reducing environmental inequities in energy systems.
