Jennifer is a participant in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and serves as the Project Manager for one of its cornerstone projects, the Apache Point Galactic Evolution Experiment 2 (APOGEE-2).  Her research is centered on the chemical composition of stellar populations as well as the chemical evolution of various Galactic components. She is also interested in stellar astrophysics and the use of fundamental physics data to improve the derivation of stellar parameters. As a member of a large-scale data project, Jennifer is keen to develop efficient data extraction and utilization techniques.  She also attempts to search for patterns and correlations in data.
