Thuy-Tien Bui

Pronouns: she/her

Thuy-Tien holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of California, Berkeley (2023) where she majored in Conservation and Resource Studies and graduated with highest distinction. Her passion for ecology and science-informed management inspired her to pursue research across various organisms and habitats. In 2021, she interned for NOAA Fisheries where she researched eastern oyster disease to inform aquaculture and restoration in Long Island Sound. Building on this experience, she spent the next few years performing fieldwork to inform conservation efforts—studying the gut microbiome of bumblebees in Southern California and the amphibian chytrid fungus in the Bay Area. Thuy-Tien recently worked with ecologists at the Golden Gate National Recreation Area to analyze long-term fish and water quality data and publish an updated report on the management of the endangered tidewater goby. At the Bren School, Thuy-Tien is specializing in Conservation Planning with a focus on Strategic Environmental Communication. Given her particular interest in holistic ecosystem-based management, she hopes to use her experience as a writer and researcher to promote public participation in science and pursue adaptive, data-driven solutions to environmental problems in this current era of global change.
