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.

Lindsay Walter is a PhD candidate in the department of Mechanical Engineering with a research focus on near-field radiative heat transfer. She is currently developing computational modeling tools to better understand the fundamental physics of heat transfer between micro/nanoscale structures. After graduation, Lindsay is interested in pursuing work in the energy field, especially as it relates to sustainable energy options and energy justice. Outside of career life, Lindsay enjoys reading, circus arts, and socializing in the great outdoors.
