Jessica received her Ph.D. from the University of Maine and her B.A. from Boston University. Her research interests focus on the reproductive ecology, population genetics and food web ecology of fucoid seaweeds in the northwestern Atlantic. Jessica is also actively involved in art-science collaborations using marine algae as inspiration.
Jessica's recently funded scholarship includes the development of a spectral library for seaweeds in the intertidal ecosystem and understanding how nearshore marine communities respond to rockweed harvest.Ph.D., Marine Biology, University of Maine
