Janelle Layton

  • Janelle Layton NOAA-EPP LMRCSC Undergraduate Fellow
    B.S., Marine and Environmental Science
    Hampton University


    Janelle Layton graduated with her bachelor's degree in marine and environmental Science from Hampton University in the spring of 2020. She worked with Dr. Eric Lewallen and Dr. Carolina Bonin, where her research focused on the feeding ecology of Pacific Lampreys assessed by gut fullness and prey identification. Janelle was very intrigued by fisheries conservation and management, genomics, marine science policy, and public outreach.

    Janelle is now pursuing her master's degree as a NOAA LMRCSC graduate fellow at Oregon State University 


    Academic Advisor: Dr. Eric Lewallen
