Jesse is an earth scientist and photographer who sees sustainability through the lens of interacting human and natural systems. He started his career with mining exploration companies, spent five years living and working in South Africa, conducted post-doctoral research at MIT, and has taught Earth science, oceanography, environmental geology, and writing courses with themes of sustainability and climate change at Wellesley College and Boston University. His favorite courses have field trips that engage students in doing science, appreciating natural design, and developing their observational and 4-D visualization skills. Recently, he served as an educational consultant for an eco-tourism and conservation company in southern Africa and toured Iceland and Nicaragua for geothermal plants and wind farms embedded in active volcanic landscapes.
