Dr. Jewett, is a NOAA scientist with diverse science and management experience in ocean acidification and coastal hypoxia (low oxygen) research programs, and the first director of NOAA?s Ocean Acidification Program.
Jewett has led the nation?s only two national hypoxia research funding programs as Hypoxia Research Program manager at the Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research in NOAA?s National Ocean Service.
