Jessie Reynolds

Master’s of Science Student, Biology

I am a Master’s of Science candidate in the Biology Department at Queen’s. Having completed a SWEP position and Honour’s Thesis in the QE3 lab, I was introduced to the complexities of mitigating anthropogenic pollution on freshwater ecosystems. This inspired me to continue my studies as a graduate student, now investigating the effects of oil sands contaminants on the physiology and behaviour of fathead minnow. I am passionate about science communication and public outreach and believe that the best way to an environmentally sustainable future is through lowering the disconnect between the science and public communities. I have developed strong written communication skills through my minor in English Literature as an undergraduate student and aim to use these skills to communicate my research to diverse audiences.
