Jess has an undergraduate degree in Ocean Earth and Atmospheric sciences from Old Dominion University as well as a master’s degree in Chemical Oceanography from University of Alaska Fairbanks. Her master’s work focused on linkages between particles and zooplankton, using optical methods to assess particle size structure and zooplankton populations; she also developed MATLAB toolboxes for analysis of particle and zooplankton data from a global image database. Jess recently relocated to Cordova and is working on zooplankton identification as well as nutrient and chlorophyll analysis in Prince William Sound.
