I am a member of the STEM Ambassador Program's 2017 cohort. STEMAP is a research and public engagement training program funded by the National Science Foundation and based at the University of Utah. STEMAP trains scientists to serve as direct “Ambassadors” for science to people who do not normally encounter science in their daily lives. During the training, I attended training workshops and held engagement events, and gained experience talking about mathematics with non-scientist.

Specifically, I worked closely with Splore, a non-profit organization that specializes in leading accessible outdoor adventures. Throughout the year, I participated in cross-country skiing and rock climbing trips, during which I discussed the mathematical concepts that can be found in each activity, as well as my current research in mathematical neuroscience. I also created informational notecards that captured key talking points to be used during other trips. I plan on participating in additional trips with Splore, as well as engaging with other connections already established in the STEM Ambassador Program, such as INSPIRE (Initiative to bring Science Programs to the Incarcerated) and Salt Lake County Senior Centers.
