Jennifer leads the Cyber-Physical (Cy-Phy) work at GRIMM, combining the world of smart mobility and cybersecurity. Supporting both the automotive and defense industries, she directs state-of-the-art teams advancing the security of connected and autonomous vehicles. Extending beyond mobility, Jennifer is an advocate for security integration in smart cities and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) design. She is building a cybersecurity community of interest and often speaks publicly on changing the perception of “hackers” from nuisances to valuable necessities. (We like that at GRIMM.)
Jennifer has served as the Cybersecurity Program Manager in product development for Mazda North America and as the Cyber-Mobility Program Manager for the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC). She currently serves as the Cyber-Mobility advisor to the Michigan Chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Board of Directors.
