Jennifer Rowe

I provide analytical and logistical support for the Herpetological Research Team. I am responsible for developing and managing our team’s data collection systems, as well as packaging and disseminating data via USGS data release products.

My role allows me to think about how ecological data are best collected and applied to research questions, and I enjoy utilizing new tools to achieve the highest standard of accuracy in data collection. I participate in many aspects of the research process, from project development and planning to data collection and proofing to writing results. Sometimes I even get out in the field to catch frogs!
