Jenn has over a decade of work and research experience in energy policy. She joined LSE from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, where she recently completed her PhD and a one-year post doc.
For her PhD, Jenn critically examined the concept of ‘wastelands’ as it relates to India’s biofuel programme through an interdisciplinary industrial and political ecology framework.
