Jess is trudging through the writing phase of her Masters of Science in Limnology at the University of Saskatchewan. As a limnologist, she is all about all things “water” and has had the opportunity to participate in many exciting aquatic research projects in watersheds across Canada. It’s easy to see how water quality impacts our daily lives, and so Jess has taken a particular interest in communicating her research findings to local interest groups and the stakeholders of the lakes she has studied. Jess began to play around with graphic design and illustration elements in attempts to improve her presentations and get people excited about her research, which eventually brought her to the Undercurrent. She is really excited to be working on the journal’s 10th anniversary revamp, and the ability to flex her creative design muscles.
