Jessica Gephart is an environmental scientist focused on the role of global seafood trade in sustainable and resilient food systems.
Her research falls into three main areas: 1) the environmental impact of seafood production and the role of trade in driving these impacts; 2) risks and resilience of seafood trade to environmental variability, and; 3) feedbacks between food systems and the environment. Through this research, she brings together diverse trade, fisheries, nutrition, and environmental data sources and often collaborates with interdisciplinary teams.
