Jessica is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) and Nutrition Systems Scientist with CSIRO Agriculture and Food, based in Brisbane. As a dietitian and public health nutritionist, she is interested in understanding how agriculture and food systems can be leveraged to improve nutrition, particularly among vulnerable population groups including women and young children. She recently completed her PhD at the University of Queensland which examined the contribution of fish to nutrition and food security in Bangladesh. Before joining CSIRO she worked for WorldFish, one of the CGIAR centres, developing approaches to integrate nutrition considerations into their work on food security related to fisheries and aquaculture. Her field research experience has been largely focused in Bangladesh and the Pacific Islands.
