Developing as a researcher through eDNA

Jamie Fogg, a Maine Top Scholar and undergraduate research assistant in the Cammen Lab, was recently featured in the Maine Epscor newsletter. Check out the article which describes her research and how she got here.

Kristina, Julia, and Jamie sampling eDNA with collaborators from Center for Coastal Studies

Jamie has worked on multiple projects as part of the Maine-eDNA research program and developed and funded her own research with a grant from the University of Maine Center for Undergraduate Research.  This past year, Jamie conducted a study in collaboration with the Center for Coastal Studies,  and co-advised by PhD student Julia Sunnarborg, which expands our understanding of eDNA dynamics around seal haulout sites. Her poster presentation of this research at the UMaine Student Symposium won the award for best undergraduate poster in Natural Sciences.
