Jennifer Jacobs is a Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of New Hampshire. Dr. Jacobs received her Sc.B. in Electrical Engineering from Brown University, an M.S. in Civil Engineering from Tufts University, and her Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Cornell University. Her research focuses on advancing knowledge on how infrastructure will respond to future climates and adaptation methods. Her research relies upon the characterization of hydrologic processes including evapotranspiration, soil-water dynamics, snow melt, and stream water energy across scales through experimentation and modeling. She uses emerging technologies and large data sets to enhance the understanding of distributed hydrological processes. She currently using microwave remote sensing and dynamically down-scaled AOGCM model output to understand continental scale patterns in snow accumulation and melt. She has over 50 published journal articles on these topics. She recently completed service as the Director of UNH’s Environmental Research Group. She is the Director of the NSF RCN SEES Infrastructure and Climate Network (ICNet) (the
