Jess is a geoscientist with expertise in the application of geochemical and spectroscopic techniques to ore systems. She is broadly interested in improving the workflows in which we collect and integrate geoscientific datasets to develop a more sustainable minerals industry. As a Senior Research Scientist in the CSIRO Mineral Resources Discovery Program, Jess is the Mineral Footprints Team leader and is involved multiple applied research projects including leading Project 3 (Real-time downhole assay) of the MinEx CRC, and Activity 5 (Outreach and Training) of the AuScope National Virtual Core Library.

During her PhD she worked in Canada's Superior Province on Archean orogenic gold systems with a focus on the Dome Mine where she also gained practical experience working in underground mining as a production geologist. Following that, she spent one year as a post-doctoral fellow and instructor at University of Winnipeg (UofW) working on spectral, mineralogical, and geochemical data sets in the study of meteorites and planetary analogue systems. She also has extensive experience applying spectroscopic and synchrotron X-ray techniques for a variety of geological materials including ore minerals, gold, meteorites, and biogeochemical samples.

Jess is strong believer in the importance of increasing inclusion and representation of historically excluded populations in the geosciences and broader STEMM community. She is actively involved in the CSIRO Mineral Resources D&I Committee and the Pride@CSIRO werkgroup and network, is on the national committee for QueersInScience, is a GICE (Geoscience Indigenous Collaboration and Engagement) GSA specialist group committee member, and is the EMCR member of the AAS (Australian Academy of Science) National Committee for the Earth Sciences
