Jessie is interested in the climate of the northeastern United States, past and future. The dynamics of the New England coastline, hurricane tracks, and temperature changes are all recorded in the coastal biosphere and stratigraphy. Her research involves dendrochronology, dendroecology, geochronology, and sedimentology (and more!) to describe and analyze past landscapes and climate.
