Jennifer Jackson studies the dynamic ocean currents, waves, and tides, and how these physical processes affect marine life. Jennifer analyzes the physical oceanography data collected year-round near the Calvert Island and Quadra Island field stations to better understand what is happening in our local waters.

Jennifer completed a PhD at the University of British Columbia, as well as three postdoctoral positions—at the University of Cape Town, at the University of Washington, and at ASL Environmental Sciences. Jennifer was recognized for excellence in reviewing from the American Geophysical Union.
