Jennifer is a PhD student at the SRC, whose work is part of an EU-funded project called ‘AdaptEcon: Adapting to a new economic reality’, which aims to build a post-growth economic model, using system dynamics methods. My part of the project focuses on the social dynamics necessary for such an economic model. As part of the AdaptEcon project, she will receive a joint PhD from Stockholm University and Université Blaise Pascal, in Clermont Ferrand, France.

Jennifer holds a bachelor’s degree in International Affairs and an MSc degree in Environmental Studies and Sustainability Science. For the past five years, she has also been a co-director of the Post Growth Institute, a global network of researchers and activists seeking pathways to shared prosperity beyond the growth-based economic system. In her work with the Post Growth Institute, she co-authored the forthcoming book, How on Earth: Flourishing in a Not-for-Profit World.

Originally from Colorado in the USA, Jennifer lived in Greece from 2009 – 2016, during the economic crisis, working with both local initiatives and global networks to help lay the foundation for a new economic era. In all of my work, I seek to bridge activism, research, and business in order to co-create a more sustainable future for humanity.
