Jessica Gephart received her PhD in Environmental Science from the University of Virginia and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the National Socio-environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) in Maryland, US. Her research focuses on environmental change and variability disruptions to food systems. Using cases of environmental and policy shocks, she examines the response and recovery of seafood production and trade. Jessica’s work examines the local to geographically-distant impacts of shocks, with the ultimate goal of identifying opportunities to improve resilience within the increasingly globalized food system.
