Jennifer Brown is a second year PhD student and graduate laboratory teaching assistant in the mechanical engineering department at Clemson University. She has found that technical writing is a recurring struggle for her students and therefore continually seeks strategies to help her students recognize their strengths and areas of improvement in their own writing. Her other research interests lie in advanced manufacturing processes and materials. Jennifer holds a B.S. in mechanical engineering and a B.A. in Modern Languages (German) from the Georgia Southern University Honors Program.
