Hannah Kania

Graduate Student
Biology Department – 2022

Hannah is inspired by evolutionary genomics and speciation. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 2021 and majored in developmental genetics. During her undergraduate, Hannah worked on biological systems in mice models (regeneration biology) and endangered amphibians (conservation genomics). After college, Hannah worked as a research tech in the Wittkopp Lab at the University of Michigan to investigate evolutionary genetics in yeast models. Hannah’s PhD research in the Yoder Lab will focus on understanding the process and patterns of speciation in cryptic mouse lemurs. Her goal is to contribute meaningful new ideas within the field of speciation biology.
