Jeanette’s is working on better quantifying risk and impacts from extremes and sea level rise in Southeast Asia. Specifically, she is exploring non-asset-based approaches that lead to more equitable planning outcomes that enhance the resilience of communities to future climate and disaster risks. Prior to her PhD, Jeanette was a Research Associate at DASL, where she studied the potential of crowdsourced or non-traditional data as a potential source of information to quantify risk. She also supported the organisation of Singapore’s first student-led mapping chapter for rapid post-disaster damage assessment.
Before joining DASL, Jeanette worked on environmental programmes and GIS projects in both the local non-profit and government sectors. She holds a MSc in Urban Science, Policy and Planning from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (2020), and a BSc (Hons) in Environmental Studies from the University of Manchester (2013).
Outside work, she enjoys a nice sunrise or sunset, being in the great outdoors on foot or bicycle, baking up a storm and making music with friends!
