Her current projects
PhD - Defence Science Technology
Jessica's PhD project works with the Australian Defence Force (ADF) on exploring how individual habits (established during the life course) intersect with perceptions of eating breakfast and in turn influence breakfast choices. She will develop and test a program aiming to increase breakfast eating within the ADF.
Jess is the Project Manager for "Leave It", a four-year program aiming to reduce koala and domestic dog interactions. The program has reached over 250,000 people, trained 71% of the local dog trainer community and reduced dog related koala deaths by 40%.
