She primarily focuses her research efforts on modeling airflow through the nasal passage and comparing pre- and post-op results. In her research position, Jen is responsible for overseeing and completing multiple projects as well as training undergraduate students in the lab. She is incredibly fortunate to have a supportive PI (read: boss) who supports cycling and believes she can be both a professional athlete and well-known researcher in her field.
