 BRUV Analyst, Global FinPrint

Jessie volunteered in Dr. Demian Chapman’s Marine Molecular Ecology & Conservation Lab at Stony Brook University for the last two years of her undergraduate degree. She watched Global FinPrint videos and helped his Ph.D. students genetically identify shark species present in the shark fin trade. While an undergraduate, she also worked on a long-lining project, implemented to gain a better understanding of sharks species present off Long Island, which led to the first young of the year white shark being satellite tagged in the Atlantic Ocean. She is currently a Ph.D. student in the Predator Ecology and Conservation Lab and analyzes BRUV footage for Global FinPrint.
