Jocelyn completed her Ph.D. at the University of Essex. Her thesis examined the drivers of fish assemblages within the Coral Triangle. She studied fish behaviour in response to changes in resource availability and habitat quality. Following her Ph.D., Jocelyn worked in the Caribbean for four years at a research institute in The Bahamas and for the British NGO, Operation Wallacea, on a range of reef fish-related projects. These projects focused on the impacts of the invasive lionfish, habitat degradation, and the effects of climate change on fish behavior and physiology. Jocelyn is now located in Northern Michigan in the USA where she is gaining freshwater fish experience. She is currently working on invasive carp and how water quality impacts their spread.
