Jess Stekettee and Austin Roy are part of Team Vole, a multi-university collaboration led by Dr. Natalie Boelman from Columbia University. During their time in Utqiagvik, Jess and Austin trapped voles and ran a series of experiments using artifical enclosures on the tundra to learn about small mammal population dynamics and how these tiny herbivores influence carbon cycling.
