Jenny Delaney is the lab manager for Dr. Peter Girguis at Harvard University.  She received her B.A. in Biology from Ripon College and her M.S. in Marine Science-Biological Oceanography from the University of South Florida. She then worked as a technician at USF, participating in research cruises and performing toxicity assays in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. On this cruise, Jenny will be a part of the team running the Girguis lab’s “pressure van,” which allows researchers to incubate animals collected by the ROV under conditions that replicate the deep sea. This will be Jenny’s first time in the South Pacific and first time aboard the R/V Falkor. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking and spending time outdoors.
