I'm Melanie Jackson, and I am a Congressional Affairs Fellow with a Ph.D. in Estuarine Biogeochemistry, which uncovered information on nitrogen cycling associated with oysters at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES), Horn Point Laboratory in Dr. Jeffrey Cornwell's laboratory.
Thank you for your interest in my work and please take a look at my current projects, outreach, and CV to get a better idea of what I do.
Dive in and see amateur footage of me collecting clumps of live oysters out in the field for experiments in the laboratory...
