Research focus: ocean’s role in the freshwater cycle, mixed layer dynamics, air-sea interactions, and ocean observing systems
Watching thunderstorms while growing up in Kansas stoked Jesse’s interest in earth sciences. After considering other fields (biochemistry, aerospace, culinary) and working lots of odd jobs, that interest was eventually channeled into a B.S. in Atmospheric Science from the University of Kansas. Following four years as a wastewater engineering technician working on municipal inflow and infiltration flow monitoring studies, she began graduate studies at the University of Washington where she earned a M.S. and Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography. She joined ESR in 2021 after spending three years at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution first as a postdoctoral investigator then as a U.S. GO-SHIP postdoctoral fellow. Her research interests include the ocean’s role in the freshwater cycle, mixed layer dynamics, air-sea interactions, and ocean observing systems.
In her free time she enjoys growing, cooking, and eating plants and being outdoors on rock, foot, and wheels. Also, cheesy jokes.
