Jessie Rack is an ecologist who studies the changes in behavior, body shape, and escape performance that allow larval salamanders to evade predators. Her previous research has focused on the chemical cues by which aquatic prey sense the presence of predators. Her passion for science is coupled with a love for science communication and education. She hopes to continue to combine these interests in a way that allows people to better understand the workings of the natural world.
