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.

Joshua Horns works at the University of Utah where he uses state-of-the-art technology to track small birds as they undergo their yearly migrations. Birds are invaluable for maintaining health ecosystems and even for maintaining healthy humans! However their massive migratory treks are fraught with danger. Joshua’s research attempts to identify ways that we as people can help these birds complete their incredible journeys.
