CW3E Welcomes Lindsey Jasperse

November 4, 2021

Lindsey Jasperse joined CW3E as a Field Researcher in October 2021. Lindsey is originally from Sonoma, California. After graduating from University of Portland, Oregon, Lindsey worked as a Lab Assistant for the CW3E, helping coordinate and participate in field research campaigns. She then pursued her master’s degree in Climate Science and Policy from Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Lindsey served as Science Program Manager for the Climate Science Alliance, working with climatologists, researchers, Tribal communities, and natural resource managers to advance climate science research and adaptation projects across San Diego County and the southwest.

After moving back home to Sonoma County in 2020, Lindsey worked as a GIS consultant and Climate-Smart Specialist for the UC Cooperative Extension, assisting with the development of fuel mapping tools, participating in geospatial analysis and forest health field research, and coordinating with landowners in Sonoma County. Experiencing devastating wildfires across northern California year after year, she has developed an interest in fire science, land management, and wildfire resilience efforts. She is involved in Sonoma County’s prescribed burn association, as a certified Wildland Firefighter Type II and on-call Wildland Firefighter working with community members and fire practitioners to improve resilience to climate change and wildfire.

As a Field Researcher for CW3E, Lindsey will be located primarily in northern California, helping with field research campaigns, observational efforts, and site maintenance for stations in the Russian River watershed. She is excited to also bring together her interests in GIS, fire science, and climate science, to help contribute to post-fire research. She looks forward to being a part of CW3E’s important research efforts close to home.
