Tiny Remmers

PhD Candidate

James Cook University

Tiny has recently started her PhD as part of the EcoRRAP program at AIMS. She is originally from Montreal, Canada and has been living in Ireland for the last 4 years before returning to Australia. She has graduated with a MSc in Applied Coastal and Marine management at University College Cork and has worked on offshore and landbased windfarm site search models and wind resource mapping, both for research projects and industry.

She is also an accomplished commercial diver with six years of experience in various SCUBA and SSBA work, including environmental monitoring, underwater construction, survey, and maintenance. In July 2021, she began her PhD under the supervision of Dr Renata Ferrari Legorreta (AIMS), Dr Alana Grech (JCU) and external supervisor Chris Roelfsema (UQ).

Tiny has a broad interest in scuba diving, ocean science, coral reef conservation, mapping, and computer programming. Her research on “3D mapping and monitoring coral reefs population and community dynamics”, will use 3D photogrammetry and remote sensing, to improve the spatial extent in monitoring techniques and workflows used to investigate drivers of coral reef recovery and adaptation to climate change.
