College of Science Ambassador

 

Alex       

Alex

Hi, my name is Alex, a senior in the department of Chemistry.  My emphasis is in biological chemistry, and I hope to go on to medical school.  I grew up in Salt Lake City and decided to attend the U because I couldn't leave this beautiful state.  Since I got in to college I've developed a passion for fencing, which I've been doing it for over two years now.

Bri

My name is Bri and I’m originally from St. George Utah. I am a Junior double majoring in Cellular & Molecular Biology and Peace & Conflict Studies, with a minor in Chemistry, and plan to pursue and MD/PhD after graduating. When I’m not in my research lab studying pathogenic fungus, I love to cook, explore new places, and be outside!

     

Caitlin

 

Caitlin

My name is Caitlin, I’m from Phoenix, Arizona, and I am a senior majoring in chemistry with emphases in physical and teaching chemistry. I’m also an undergraduate researcher working with Prof. Shumaker-Parry on fabricating nanomaterials for chemical sensing applications. In my free time, I love to read sci-fi, tend to my succulent garden, go for a run, or draw portraits. I hope to someday become a science educator and spread my love of the physical sciences with the next generation of students.

Logan  

Logan

My Name is Logan and I'm from Salt Lake City Utah, and I'm about as "Utah" as they come. I am beginning my Junior Year at the University of Utah majoring in Physics with minors in Mathematics and Chemistry. I am currently planning on going onto graduate school in condensed matter physics or some other closely related topic. If I wasn't a Physicist I would be a historian. I have a passion for Education and learning and my friends often hear me say, "Our Intelligence is Proportional to our Passion for Learning Truth."  Some of my hobbies include: Running, Hiking, stargazing, dancing and collecting books. My dream is to have a room with bookshelves on every wall.
