Jessie Jaeger joined PSE in 2020 to support the organization’s work on air pollution, health equity, and community resilience to climate change. Her recent work includes research on the potential impacts of sea level rise, extreme coastal flooding events, and proximity to hazardous sites on disadvantaged communities in the coastal U.S.

Domestically, Jaeger has conducted research and prepared technical analyses on a wide variety of projects throughout the United States involving the evaluation of environmental conditions and regulatory compliance issues. She has conducted research with the Sustainability and Health Equity (S/HE) Lab at UC Berkeley to spatially analyze the potential contamination risks associated with coastal flooding due to sea level rise on disadvantaged communities. She has also conducted research internationally with Johns Hopkins University (JHU) on a multi-country liquid petroleum gas (LPG) intervention trial on household air pollution and health in Puno, Peru.

Jaeger has a Master of Public Health (MPH) in Environmental Health Sciences and a Master of City Planning (MCP) with a specific emphasis in Healthy Cities & Environmental Planning from the University of California, Berkeley.
