Jennie Stephens (MS '98, PhD '02)

In 2016 I started a new Professorship at Northeastern in Boston which is an innovative, exciting University that is a leader in interdisciplinary engaged research and experiential education. In addition to my research on social and political dimensions of the renewable energy transition moving away from fossil fuels, I am also playing a leadership role in facilitating new collaborative interdisciplinary research in the Global Resilience Institute at Northeastern. It's been fun! My daughters - who were both born in Pasadena while I was a graduate student at Caltech - are now 16 and 17 with the oldest heading off to college this fall. Time flies!
