Laramie Jensen


Laramie Jensen is a high latitude chemical oceanographer who received her PhD in Oceanography from Texas A&M University in 2020. She studies micronutrient trace metals (like iron, manganese, copper, nickel, zinc, cadmium, lead, and more) and how their supply to the Arctic is changing. As a former CICOES postdoc here at UW, she collaborated with Drs Rebecca Woodgate and Cecilia Peralta Ferriz at the PSC to combine trace metal and macronutrient measurements with the high resolution hydrography surveys conducted as part of the Bering Strait Mooring Project. She is looking forward to continuing this project and expanding the scope of what we know about micronutrient supply and distribution across the Arctic Ocean, and more locally in the Puget Sound, via collaborations with other APL oceanographers.
