Hannah Stormer with Wabamun snails 6 June 2019

Hannah completed her B.Sc. specializing in Animal Biology at the U of A in 2021. During her degree she completed a Biology 399 project investigating whether gut contents of feather mites differ between adults and juveniles, and worked as a summer technician in the Proctor lab. In 2019 she was awarded a USRA to examine the relationships between two kinds of protists she discovered living on the integument of snails, and spent much of the summer of 2020 examining the morphology of these interesting ciliates using histology and both scanning and transmission electron microscopy. For her M.Sc., Hannah plans to study patterns in the diversity and distribution of sowbugs (Isopoda: Oniscidea) and their symbionts in Alberta.
