Welcome to the Team Thaïs!

Thaïs Fournier recently joined CRC as a coastal resilience specialist, bringing with her the interdisciplinary skills needed to assist coastal communities in becoming more resilient to the effects of climate change. Born in Fall River, MA, Thaïs is a coastal ecologist whose international research has taken her oversees from New Zealand to work on conservation of overharvested shellfish, to an archipelago in Mexico assessing the effects of climate and marine input on terrestrial communities. Thaïs also spent two years in Rwanda teaching biology with the U.S. Peace Corps.

Before joining CRC, Thaïs worked for the Town of Nantucket’s Natural Resources Department as their Water Resource Specialist, overseeing the Island’s estuarine monitoring and research program. Prior to her role on Nantucket, Thaïs worked for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters in Washington, D.C. to develop recommendations on policy and program issues to better characterize potential impacts of biosolids on water quality and human health.

We are so lucky to have Thaïs on our team!
