Jessica Valenti, Ph.D.

National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Education:

  • Ph.D., Oceanography, Rutgers University, 2020
  • B.S., Marine Science, Stockton University, 2014

Jessica is interested in estuarine organismal ecology and how human activities may impact the abundance, diversity, and species composition of estuarine animals and the transfer of energy through estuarine ecosystems. She has studied the impacts of oil spills, urbanization (land development), and hurricanes on estuarine fish. 

  • Jessica’s postdoctoral research will use the Rutgers University Marine Field Station’s long term (30+ years) larval fish collection to investigate past and present microplastic intake into the base of marine and estuarine food webs.
