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.

Tegan Lengyel works in the Anderegg lab at the University of Utah where she studies the impact of climate change on forests. As a lab manager, she assists graduate students and postdoctoral staff with their research ranging from the impacts of drought on xylem function to biogeochemical traits of soil. Tegan is a prospective graduate student for Fall 23 and is interested in studying the impacts of climate change on terrestrial and marine ecosystems. Tegan is looking forward to the many ways in which STEMAP will allow her to engage with her community through science. Along with her interests in science, Tegan also enjoys spending time outdoors skiing, hiking, backpacking, camping, and spending time in the field!
