While a graduate student at UC Davis in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and student researcher at the UCD Center for Watershed Sciences, Jeanette focused her studies on river hydraulics. During this time she worked on the development of surface water models of the Yolo Bypass in California and the Dulcepamba River in Ecuador. Her interests include the creative use of engineering design for the reconciliation and integration of human and ecological needs and teaching others about the opportunities available in engineering. See the links below for further information about the projects that Jeanette worked on.
