Jessica is a Master’s student in the Department of Environmental Health at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. She is currently working with Anna on evaluating a new method for measuring personal exposures to chemical mixtures in the indoor environments using the benchtop XRF analyzer to measure levels of elements and metals that could be potential indicators for chemical exposures. In conjunction, she is interested in chemical safety regulations and evaluating policies to reduce chemicals and other environmental pollutants. Her other current research project centers on potential effect modification of solar radiation on PM2.5 associated mortality in Boston, MA.
She earned her Bachelor’s (BS) in Environmental Economics and Policy from UC Berkeley with a focus on energy and water, and Master of Management (MM) from University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.
