Biological Sciences Undergraduate of the Month!
December 2017 Awardee: Hanna Karevold, Gillam Lab
Our December Undergraduate of the Month is Hanna Karevold. Hanna is from Moorhead, MN and has participated for nearly two years in the Gillam Bat Behavioral Ecology lab.
Hanna joined the Gillam lab in early 2016 and quickly became an indispensable member of the team. She has assisted on various projects, including studies aimed at assessing 'personality' in bats, as well as investigations gathering morphometric and genetic data aimed at better identifying local Myotis bat species. She has gained skills in radio-tracking endangered bats, capture and handling of bats as well as animal husbandry skills.
Hanna will graduate this December and will join the Gillam lab as a graduate student in 2018, where she hopes to investigate the relationship between morphological variations that influence hearing and foraging strategy of Myotis bats.
