Rosset received her undergraduate degree in Environmental Science from the University of West Florida in 2010. She worked to clean up the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, studied the effects of Karenia brevis, and shortly thereafter moved to Bermuda where she worked at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS). For three years she tested the island’s air quality while also learning shark tagging techniques and the importance of eradicating lionfish from Bermuda’s ecosystem.
In the fall of 2013, Julianne began pursuing her master’s degree at UMass Amherst, joining the Jordaan lab as well as the Massachusetts Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. Her thesis work focuses on juvenile alewife life history characteristics in several coastal Massachusetts ponds.
