Jessica Deichmann

Research Scientist / Center for Conservation and Sustainability

Research Focus

Jessie’s interests lie in tropical amphibian ecology, ecosystem ecology and conservation biology as well as disease ecology and the drivers of amphibian decline in lowland tropical systems. She is currently working as research scientist on the Peruvian Amazon Biodiversity Assessment, Monitoring and Conservation Program (BAMCP) where she will be developing various projects designed to explore ways to mitigate the effects of oil and natural gas exploration and extraction on biodiversity in lowland tropical rainforests.
