Biography

Before joining the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, Dr Lavers worked for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on remote islands in Hawaii, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (London), and completed her first post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Tasmania (Quantitative Marine Science program).

Research Themes

Jennifer's research aligns to the University's research theme ofMarine, Antarctic and Maritime. Her research interests include understanding how marine apex predators, such as seabirds, can act as sentinels of ocean health, and translating this knowledge into outreach programs (e.g., art-science linkages) that engage the broader public in science and conservation. Jennifer's research, and that of her students, primarily focuses on plastic, heavy metals, POPs, and radionuclides as pollutants of aquatic ecosystems
