Jesse's interests lie in the chemical transformations that organic compounds undergo in the atmosphere. His graduate work focused on gas-phase reactions, and his postdoctoral work (at Caltech) on the formation
of secondary organic aerosol (SOA). He was then a Senior Scientist at Aerodyne Research, Inc., developing and using mass spectrometric tools to characterize organic aerosol. He joined the MIT faculty in 2009.
