Jennifer assists faculty and graduate students at the University of Virginia with digital research and pedagogy projects. Her own digital research project, Preserving, Reconstructing, and Teaching in 3D, explores classroom applications for photogrammetry and 3D printing. This project developed from her summer research in Iceland and incorporates the model and 3D print of a medieval sculpture from Hítardalur, Iceland.

In 2016, Jennifer’s experimentation with 3D printed historical artifacts was featured by  UVA Today and CBC Radio in Canada. Jennifer’s work with professors and pedagogy was also featured by EdSurge.
