April Chapter Speaker

by: Cy Ball

Speaker: Kasey Pregler
Topic: Her Graduate studies research

April 3 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm: Chapter Meeting.

Kasey Pregler has been awarded the West Denver Chapter – Trout Unlimited Scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year.
Kasey is a PhD student from Colorado.

She has received two teaching awards and best presentation awards from previous institutions during graduate school. She was also awarded the John E. Skinner Memorial Award from the American Fisheries Society.

I am originally from Connecticut where I completed undergrad and my masters at the University of Connecticut. My research focuses on fish community patterns and the demographic patterns that shape these communities. Additionally, I also study the genetic integrity of rear-edge trout populations and the implications of historical stocking events, as well as our ability to accurately characterize trout population trends based on current monitoring protocols.

Through my teaching and research experience, I would like to attain a faculty position in academia. It is my hope to mentor both graduate and undergraduate students and develop my own research program. I would like to pass on the knowledge and career advice my mentors have bestowed upon me to future fisheries professionals.

Thank you for your scholarship support. This scholarship allows me to attend scientific conferences in order to gain additional skills in my field and network with other professionals. Given that I am towards the end of my graduate career this is a critical time for me to be networking and this scholarship enables me to do so.
