Bsc, La Trobe University, 2014-2017
Jami’s research interests are in the field of marine ecology, in particular the protection and conservation of coastal ecosystems such as mangroves and salt marsh. She is currently working on her honours project titled ‘Southeast Australian saltmarsh allometry, biomass and blue carbon’. In this study we aim to develop allometric biomass equations for a range of Southeast Australian saltmarsh species, enabling accurate quantification of stored biomass and carbon stocks. This project will form an integral part of saltmarsh biomass mapping and monitoring, and carbon stock quantification within the Mapping Ocean Wealth project.
