Jennifer holds MSc and PhD degrees in Physics from Queen’s University (Canada), where she worked on instrumentation development for scanning tunneling microscopy studies of semiconductor surfaces.

She has since held an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Università degli Studi di Trieste (Italy) and a Research Associate position at INRS (Canada), where she worked on a range of topics in nanoscience.  Her current research interests include self-assembly and reactions of molecules at surfaces, and the growth and modification of graphene and other 2D materials.  She draws on a range of experimental and computational techniques, with a focus on using scanning probe microscopy and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) to elucidate these systems.
