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 170 graduate students, post-docs, faculty, staff, and undergraduate students. 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.

Hanna made her way to the Chemistry Department at the University of Utah after finishing her Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry at Gonzaga University. Although she misses the Pacific Northwest, she has fallen in love with the Wasatch range and looks forward to exploring it further on her skis, bike, and with her climbing rope. While she’s not adventuring, Hanna works in Dr. Matt Sigman’s research group where she is developing predictive and mechanistically insightful models of biocatalyst specificity. Hanna is deeply interested in and inspired by the exquisite efficiency of Nature’s chemical mediators, and hopes that they can be manipulated to solve many longstanding chemical and societal obstacles.

Hanna also loves to cook, craft, read, and garden.
