Jacob is working with Steve Haddock while pursuing a PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UCSC. He is especially interested in biochemical adaptation to high pressure in the deep sea, and is investigating ctenophore proteins as part of the DEEPC project. Jacob did his undergraduate studies in Biochemistry and Biophysics at Stanford University, where he studied acclimatization to heat stress in mussels. He previously worked on marine natural product drug discovery at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and remains interested in applications of marine biochemistry.
