Academic Appointments

Postdoctoral researcher in Environmental Studies

Jessica is an aquatic ecologist and postdoctoral researcher in Environmental Studies. She studies ecological questions related to aquatic food webs, cyanobacteria, cyanotoxins, and lake water quality in the northeastern U.S. and in the Arctic. Central themes of her research include understanding how cyanobacteria and their toxins influence food webs and teasing apart potential routes of exposure to cyanotoxins in the environment. Her current research involves using remote sensing techniques to develop predictive models of water quality in northeastern lakes, with the goal of improving predictions of parameters such as cyanobacterial abundance and cyanotoxin concentrations in freshwater systems. Jessica has a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Dartmouth, a M.S. in Biology from Villanova University, and a B.S. in Zoology and B.A. in German from the University of New Hampshire.
