Jessica Metter (Graduate Student)
Jessica earned B.S. degrees in Chemistry and Mathematics from the University of Missouri at the end of 2018. Her current research involves using gas chromatography to quantify bromocarbon emissions (e.g. bromoform) from seaweeds that are of interest to be grown via aquaculture for methane reduction in cattle. Yet this same compound can contribute to ozone depletion in the atmosphere. As part of her thesis, she hopes to quantify how much bromoform will be released to the atmosphere by aquaculture and the environmental impact. In her free time Jessica enjoys traveling, running, surfing, rock climbing, hiking, diving, and baking.
