Jennifer Leigh BSc (Hons) MSc

Communications Officer and CPR Survey Plankton Analyst

Jennifer Leigh

Since joining the CPR Survey in 2011, I have developed my taxonomic expertise in phyto- and zooplankton and am part of both the North Atlantic and North Pacific Analysis teams. During this time, I’ve worked on various aspects of the CPR Survey and have used this wealth of knowledge to deliver outreach events including training workshops in the UK and abroad and hosting visitors to the MBA. 

In addition to the position of Plankton Analyst, I am also Communications Officer for the MBA. Through this role I share the story and impact of the CPR Survey with a wide range of audiences via presentations at conferences, codeveloping exhibitions in public spaces and working with national media. I am also responsible for internal MBA communications, which includes coordinating a series of internal seminars, publishing monthly newsletters and compiling the MBA Annual Report.
