Meet Jessica Chopyk, PhD. Jessica will serve as a toxicologist in our Carlsbad office.

A published researcher, Jessica previously surveyed bacterial and viral diversity in irrigation water. She has also examined bacterial contamination in a variety of sources, including traditional combustible and electronic cigarette products; hides during beef processing; and hospital ICU surfaces. Most recently, her work focused on identifying potential sources of COVID-19 contamination on surfaces within a clinical sample processing center. She holds a doctoral degree in toxicology and environmental health from the University of Maryland, College Park as well as a master’s degree in plant and soil sciences and bachelor’s degree in biotechnology from the University of Delaware.

We’re excited to have you on the team, Jessica!
