My name is Annie Walgren and I am from Laramie, WY. I am a senior at the University of Wyoming studying Microbiology and Molecular Biology. In the Wyoming Water Bear Lab, Annie’s research focuses on the unique ability of tardigrades to survive in extreme environments.
Dani is working with postdoctoral researcher, Dulcinea Groff, in the Shuman Lab. They are researching factors that may influence interpretations of paleoclimate proxies using sedges (a grass-like plant) in the Rocky Mountains.
