Tansy Remiszewski is an Ecology M.S. student advised by Dr. Phaedra Budy of the Fish Ecology Lab. Her thesis research examines extreme geomorphic change in a historically degraded desert tributary, specifically focusing on how geomorphic change can both contribute to ecosystem resiliency and create diverse habitat for fishes. Tansy is a Massachusetts native and received her B.S. in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2018. It was here that she was introduced to the field of aquatic ecology, working as a lake and stream technician for the Massachusetts Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit throughout her undergraduate career. After graduation, Tansy served as an AmeriCorps member in Montana and as a park ranger for the Army Corps of Engineers in the Lower Connecticut River Basin. Tansy is broadly interested in stream restoration and is especially curious about the use of new and novel methods to create habitat for endangered native fishes. In her off time, she enjoys cooking elaborate meals, brainstorming her next art project and spending time outdoors with her two dogs.
