Jessica's research aims to support multi-stakeholder collaboration for infrastructure development and infrastructure adaptation to environmental impacts. Her passion for understanding the intersectionality of engineering and society was fostered through her involvement with Engineers Without Borders USA and engineering work in Navajo Nation. Her engagement in policy and supporting youth engagement have been shaped by her involvement with the UN Major Group for Children and Youth (MGCY).
