My name is Jess Perreault and I am a senior marine biology major at the University of Rhode
Island. I’m a Rhode Island native and I love swimming, diving, and exploring new places. In the
past, my research projects have sent me all over, from Hawaii (working with sharks) to the
British Virgin Islands (focusing on coral reef restoration). This is my first time working for Dr.
Durbin, and I am thrilled to be a part of the team!
