Jennifer's research areas areas are direct and indirect effects of chemical and physical pollution, especially plastics, on wildlife and habitats. Particular interest in sub-lethal effects, quantifying population-level impacts, developing robust methods to ensure data are collected in a systematic and repeatable manner, and identification of mitigation techniques that minimise harm to ecosystems or reduce/eliminate waste production. Strong believer that tackling the big questions in science requires collaborative, multidisciplinary approaches that engage the wider community.
