Future of Innovation in Sciety


Jessica’s research interests surround applied conservation science, policy informatics, and higher education organization. After graduating with her Biological Sciences degree in Conservation Biology & Ecology in Spring 2017, Jessica joined the Masters of Science and Technology Policy program in SFIS to pursue the big question:

What does the environmental movement look like at universities in the U.S. and are their undergraduates getting the resources they need to be effective agents of change?

Jessica is interested in the lessons we can learn at the intersection of big data and detailed qualitative analysis from student accounts. When she’s not working towards improving the trajectory of the environmental movement, Jessica can be found playing basketball, eating Mediterranean food, or looking at pictures of corgis.
