Alexandra Thomsen
State Fellow / athomsen@csumb.edu

Alexandra Thomsen earned a master’s degree in environmental science from California State University Monterey Bay in 2020. For her thesis research, she collaborated with the Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve (ESNERR) to monitor and understand restoration success. Using field-based and remote sensing methods, she examined the spatial patterns of plant colonization at a tidal marsh restoration site managed by ESNERR to inform adaptive management and future restoration planning. 

For her fellowship with the San Francisco Estuary Partnership, Thomsen will assist with development of a Bay Area Wetlands Regional Monitoring Program, which aims to improve the utility of monitoring to inform decision-making about tidal wetland restoration and protection.
