PhD student, Dept. of Biology, New York University

Jacquie's doctoral research integrates molecular analyses at multiple marker systems, with life history data collected from humpback whale populations on the South Atlantic and Southwestern Indian Oceans to address questions regarding population structuring. Essentially, she is evaluating the extent to which dispersal, ranging from seasonal migrations to local movements, influences genetic patterns at temporal and hierarchical geographical scales.
