He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Washington School of Public Health, where he was an investigator within the Pacific Northwest Center for Human Health and Ocean Studies. His research focused on the application of emerging genomic tools and technology for public health surveillance of coastal environments. Prior to this, Jesse completed a master's in the University of Washington’s School of Marine and Environmental Affairs where he focused on aquaculture practices and policy and its relevance to food security.
