As Research Director at BuildingGreen, I dabble in - or dive headlong into - a wide range of BuildingGreen internal and collaborative projects, and am part of the team working to make the GreenSpec product directory as robust as possible. I have every intention of making my bio personalized, but there are too many other fun things to do than talk about myself – so in the mean time: Through her work with BuildingGreen, Toxics Use Reduction Institute, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Rocky Mountain Institute, and Demand Management Institute, Jennifer has conducted research and analysis in a variety of sustainability topics including green building, commercial and industrial energy efficiency, electronics recycling, and the economics of toxics use reduction. Her activities at BuildingGreen include providing technical and research support for GreenSpec, EBN, and other BuildingGreen activities, as well as collaborating on projects such as the ASID/USGBC ReGreen Guidelines and a policy white paper for the Commission for Environmental Cooperation. A primary focus of hers has been developing and clarifying standards to assess the environmental sustainability of products, processes, and organizations. To this end, her activities at BuildingGreen include researching and updating product criteria for GreenSpec, and providing technical support to the Construction Specification Institute (CSI) on GreenFormat. Jennifer has a dual MS from MIT in Technology Policy and Material Science & Engineering, and a BS in Environmental Science from Brown University.
