Jeanette Choong

Jeanette is working on developing tools to better quantify damage and losses from extreme hazard events. Her research leverages the potential of crowdsourced or non-traditional data as a potential way to improve the way risk is quantified. Part of her work also involves fostering a volunteer mapping community for rapid post-disaster damage assessment. In addition, Jeanette is responsible for building DASL’s field research capacity.

Prior to joining DASL, Jeanette worked on environmental programmes and GIS projects in both the 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).

In her free time, she enjoys exploring natural spaces, photographing wildlife, baking and making music with friends.
