Hannah Rempel is a Smithsonian Predoctoral Fellow and Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Texas at Austin, working with Dr. Jordan Casey.
Hannah's current research focuses on how the roles of herbivorous fishes vary in response to local-scale human stressors. Her approaches integrate field-based research with lab-based DNA metabarcoding and isotopic techniques.
Her broader scientific interests are in studying the ecological roles and interactions of marine organisms, how they change in response to human impacts, and how this may alter ecosystem services these organisms provide to coastal communities.
