Some say Remy got her love for the marine world from her grandfather. She is from Guadalajara, Mexico, where she grew up with a family of mixed nationalities. During her undergraduate studies at the University of the Americas Puebla, she spent a semester abroad in Australia where she reinforced her desire to study marine biology. She completed her BS in Biology in 2011 and took a year off to teach diverse science subjects at the Tec de Monterrey school.
Remy joined Dr. Berumen’s Reef Ecology Lab as a Master’s student in 2013 and worked on population genetics, larval dispersal, and invertebrate spawning behavior, focusing on creatures such as anemones and zoanthids. She graduated in December 2014 and has accepted a PhD position at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
