Jennifer is a Research Analyst with a passion for environmental health. She has a background in environmental studies and public health, including experience in respiratory health and air quality research with USC’s AIRE Study Team. Her research experience, her experiences interning for nonprofits in the Eastern Coachella Valley (including Lideres Campesinas and Alianza CV), and her experience interning with Congressman Raul Ruiz, M.D. have created an environmental justice and equity lens that informs her work. With her background and strong quantitative analysis skills, she will contribute to R+A’s evaluation, assessment, and strategic planning practice, while centering approaches that are culturally informed and seek to actively engage, empower, and increase the health of marginalized communities and diverse populations.
