Jordan is a marine ecologist with a particular interest in trophic interactions on coral reefs. Using molecular approaches such as DNA metabarcoding, she elucidates cryptic trophic pathways, examines fine-scale niche partitioning, and investigates the resilience of food webs under global change. Jordan completed her PhD in marine ecology at James Cook University in Australia in 2015, followed by postdoctoral research positions at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC and the École Pratique des Hautes Études (CRIOBE) in France and French Polynesia. In 2020, she joined the University of Texas at Austin Marine Science Institute as a principal investigator.
Jordan is a contributor to the Gulf Coast, Texas Observatory.
