Jenna Stewart

Jenna received her B.S. in Environmental Science from University of Oregon in 2013 and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Water Resources Engineering at University of Colorado. During her undergraduate career, she was a member of the Environmental Leadership Program Stream Stewardship team, and completed an honors thesis on the effects of climate change on soil nitrogen storage in Pacific Northwest grasslands. Before entering the University of Colorado, Jenna worked for the Aquatic Department of the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON, Inc.) in Boulder, CO and helped to construct a continental scale initiative for collecting data on aquatic habitats. Her current research includes developing a physically based hydrologic model to simulate the effects of climate change and land-cover disturbance on water quality and flow rates. Jenna is originally from Portland, OR and her interests include hiking, soccer, guitar and playing in the outdoors.
