Jessica is a grad student at the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences (SAFS). Her advisor is PSC’s Kristin Laidre.
Jessie’s Master’s thesis research will focus on the relationship between ringed seal lairs and snow depth in the context of Arctic climate change. This work will be done in collaboration with NOAA, researchers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the community of Kotzebue, AK. Jessie is supported by a SAFS Fellowship and an ARCS Fellowship. She graduated from the University of Montana in 2015 with a B.S. in Wildlife Biology and minors in Mathematics and Climate Change Studies.
For her undergraduate research, she used playback experiments to study the acoustic mimicry of bird alarm calls in walnut sphinx caterpillars.
