J. Tyrell Styhl
- BS University of Idaho 2018
A 5th generation Idahoan, I grew up in and around the mountains of southeastern Idaho. In 2015, I earned an A.S. in biology with an emphasis in natural resources from the College of Western Idaho (CWI) and a B.S. in ecology and conservation biology with minors in wildlife resources and statistics in 2018 from the University of Idaho (UI).
Currently I am pursuing a Ph.D. at UI and am co-advised by Dr. Dave Tank in the Department of Biological Sciences and Dr. Courtney Conway in the Department of Fish and Wildlife Sciences. For my doctoral research, I am using DNA metabarcoding to study the ontogenetic shifts in diet of greater sage-grouse, and how dietary shifts influence and help explain seasonal changes in habitat use. When I am not conducting research, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, hunting, carpentry, and gardening.
