STEM Ambassadors

The STEM Ambassador Program began in 2016 as a training program for a small cohort of University of Utah scientists. Since then, we have grown to work with over 50 faculty, graduate students, and post-docs. Scroll down to learn about the scientists who have participated. Contact us if you would like to reach out to a STEM Ambassador.

Note that many Ambassador bios were uploaded when the Ambassador joined the program and may not be current.

Connor Healy is a computational biologist, a huge nerd, and a proud advocate for the LGBTQ+ community. He uses image analysis and simulation to study cellular patterning in order to better understand the form and function of human tissue. In his spare time, he uses the same computational techniques to improve his Dungeons and Dragons campaigns and to design his next cosplay. He actively seeks to improve LGBTQ+ representation in STEM and fights for the rights of sexually marginalized groups in Utah.
