Jennie C. Stephens' research and teaching focuses on the technologies and policies associated with confronting global climate change. She has particular interest in technologies that have potential to satisfy increasing demand for energy in both developed and developing countries without increasing CO2 emissions and the policies that could promote and support the deployment of these technologies. Technologies associated with capturing and storing CO2 have been a recent focus of her work. Stephens was previously a research fellow at Harvard's Energy Technology Innovation Program within the Kennedy School of Government. She received her Ph.D. and M.S. from the California Institute of Technology in Environmental Science and Engineering and her B.A. from Harvard in Environmental Science and Public Policy.
