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.

Marc Calaf directs the Wind Energy and Turbulence Lab at the University of Utah. His research group studies the impacts of wind turbines on the dynamics of the atmospheric boundary layer (first kilometer of the atmosphere) and works to develop new parameterizations and models to better reproduce the interaction between the land-surface and atmospheric flow and to be used in numerical weather prediction models.
