Nicky Faucheux

Nicky with sturgeon


After growing up in Vicksburg, MS, I headed west for higher education. I obtained my bachelor's in Environmental Science from Louisiana Tech in 2015, and completed my master's in Aquatic Resources from Texas State University in 2017 with my master's thesis "Rapid Quantitative Assessment to Assist in Identifying Imperiled Fishes." After graduation, I spent a year working as a biologist technician for for the Fish Ecology Team of the Environmental Lab of the Corps of Engineers ERDC facility in Vicksburg. I am excited to apply what I learned in Texas here in my home state of Mississippi, where I will be pursuing my doctorate. I will be working on a project looking at the influence of physical stream characteristics on fish communities in the tributary streams to the Yazoo River.
