Hannah is an undergraduate who worked as a summer technician in the Proctor lab in 2019, washing birds for mites and lice and searching for symbiotic oligochaetes (Chaetogaster) on freshwater snails. She then completed a full year Biol 399 project investigating whether gut contents of feather mites differ between adults and juveniles. Hannah was awarded a USRA to examine the relationships between some protists she discovered living on the integument of snails in 2019, which will include histology and scanning electron microscopy.
