Trey Sasser

Position title: Graduate Student


Trey started working in the lab during summer 2019, and participated in field projects both in Alaska and on Vancouver Island. He did his undergraduate work at the University of Montana and received the University’s prestigious Leadership Scholarship. His undergrad research focused on understanding how deer mice adapt to life at high altitudes, and he still has a passion for small mammal work. However, for the near term Trey will examine the energetic tradeoffs associated with the evolution of parasite resistance by sticklebacks. The Department of Biological Sciences awarded him a competitive, 4-semester Recruiting TA-ship to support his MS work.
