Matt Olson
My name is Matt and I’m a PhD Candidate in the Department of Geography studying glaciers in the Himalaya! I’m a research assistant in the SWIRL lab working with Dr. Summer Rupper and Dr. McKenzie Skiles on a combination of glacier modeling and remote sensing. My current research focuses on understanding different mechanism that enhance solar radiation on snow and ice throughout the Himalayan region. Specifically, I’m interested in how aerosol deposition (such as dust and black carbon), in conjunction with various characteristics of topography, can lead to enhanced snow melt and larger changes in glacier mass for certain watersheds throughout the Himalaya. I have been awarded funding from the Global Change and Sustainability Center (GCSC) to present my research at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) conference in Washington D.C. this December. I’m grateful for their assistance in helping students like me progress in my field of research.

Kaedan O'Brien
Meet Kaedan O'Brien, anthropology master's student! "I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, graduating with a BS in Anthropology and Zoology. My interest in the interlocking disciplines of mammalian ecology, human evolution, and environmental science brought me to Kenya in 2017 to work on a paleoecological project with a diverse group of mentors. Since then, I've been back to northern and western Kenya continuing fieldwork with the Koobi Fora Field School and with my chair, Dr. Tyler Faith. My research focuses on large mammal faunal turnover during the Early Pleistocene, with a particular emphasis on spatiotemporal grassland dynamics, and how they affected species such as Eurygnathohippus cornelianus, the last of the three-toed horses to live alongside our ancestors in the plains of eastern Africa."

sydney cahoonStudent Spotlight

Sydney Cahoon
My name is Sydney and I am majoring in Anthropology and double minoring in History and Religious Studies. For my first two UROP projects, I studied the temporal feeding patterns of wild howler monkeys in the Costa Rican rainforest with my mentor Dr. Melissa Schaefer. With the Francis Family Foundation Research Scholarship I will be researching the primate pet trade in the USA. Even though all three of my projects have been primate based, that doesn’t mean that I am only interested in our furry friends. I believe that having an overall understanding of our closest relatives interact and react to the environment is extremely important, but we should also pay attention to what we humans are impacting in both positive and negative ways. We should all listen to the past, pay attention to the now, and be prepared for the future.

"My internship has opened my eyes in regards to the issue of food insecurity. I’ve had the privilege of providing service that benefits individuals from the lower social class, which I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. Through my internship, I have gained a desire to continue volunteering in my community as often as I can. I’ve learned that food insecurity is a real challenge that millions of individuals face each day, but our efforts to help them can provide much needed relief for as many people as we can reach."

SOC 2015-090: Doing Sociology 
We live in an increasingly data-centric world. Everything from television commercials ("...four out of five dentists recommend using Colgate!") to news reports ("...sixty percent of Americans 'Strongly Approve' of a new plan to officially change the name of the country to 'the United States of Awesomeness'...") and research findings ("...a recent study found that raising the cost of a pack of cigarettes by just $1.00 would make smokers 20 percent more likely to quit...") reference some form of data analysis, though it's been my experience that the average person is woefully unequipped to evaluate such claims. This course and its accompanying text seek to change that by providing you with the background necessary to think critically about some of the more common forms of data analysis. Additionally, this course is designed to help you succeed in your future academic pursuits, including Social Statistics (SOC 3112) and Research Methods (SOC 3111). This course is offered each semester.

Benjamin Marconi
I’m a second year Ph.D. student working to apply a host of geochemical tools to study variability in large scale climate circulations throughout recent geologic history. I’m interested in the intrinsic link between humans and their environment, and by studying the nature of past climate change, I hope to use my research as a tool for managing decisions concerning modern climate systems. Today, the implications of anthropogenic climate change are wide reaching and stand to most affect vulnerable, impoverished populations across the globe. If one can understand the climatic story of the past, we can use our knowledge to work for a better environmental future. On days when I’m not in the lab, you can find me skiing and ice climbing in the Wasatch!

I am originally from Midway, Utah and have since lived in several different states and countries. I am a Spanish Major and pre-medical student. My goal is to one day be a General Practitioner with an emphasis on helping underserved populations. I like spend my free time riding and racing bikes, gardening, or backpacking. I love anything that has to do with the Spanish language, Latin American studies, and history. This, along with the help of Professor Macfarlan, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology, led to a research project where we are trying to unravel the Historical Demography of Baja California Sur. Little is known about the historical demography of Baja california which has led to it being known as "the lost peninsula". The goal of the project is to better understand how various influences such as disease and social conflicts affect population dynamics.

Marianne Newell
My name is Marianne and I’m a master’s student in the Geography department. I graduated in the Environmental and Sustainability Studies BS program in fall 2017. During my undergraduate studies I was a research assistant in the Geography RED Lab, thanks to the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP). This experience ultimately led me to the position I am in today studying under Dr. Andrea Brunelle. My research focuses on paleoenvironmental reconstructions of ancient Lake Bonneville through lake core sediment analysis. I analyze sediment stratigraphy, geochemistry, charcoal presence and pollen/plant species to learn about the past environment in this region. I have been awarded funding from the Global Change and Sustainability Center (GCSC) to present my research at the PACLIM Conference in Pacific Grove, California in February 2019. I’m very thankful for programs such as UROP and GCSC for giving so many students amazing educational opportunities here at the U.

ANTH 1010: Culture & the Human Experience
This course introduces students to the concept of culture as a framework for understanding similarities and differences in behavior and values in human societies from all parts of the world. The intersections and complexity of historical, social, political, economic and religious structures and forces in cultures are examined. Most case studies are from non-Western cultures in South America, Africa and Oceania, but examples and links to cultural and social-economic diversity within the United States are also integral to the course. Emphasis is placed on understanding how culture patterns human thought and feelings about the natural environment, social relations, history and “others”. An underlying theme is that anthropological knowledge can be used to solve contemporary local and global issues. This course is taught each semester.

Meet Ryan McCulloch, one of this year's Solutions Scholars! "My interests in ecological science and social issues has led me to study in both the Geography and Environmental & Sustainability Studies programs at the University of Utah. I am considering my options for graduate school, as I want to specialize and one day study plants as a botanist and/or biogeographer. No matter what I end up doing as a career, I think it’s crucial as a responsible citizen to stay educated and active regarding issues of equity. For this reason, I try to incorporate classes into my schedule that deal with race, gender, and class whenever I can, and much of my free time is spent in LGBT+ spaces and working to understand the issues that we face today."

PSY 2120-090: Memory & Cognition in Everyday Life
Ever wonder how you are able to remember important events or names of family and friends (or why you are so bad at it)? Or what you can do to improve your memory? We have an extraordinary array of mental abilities that allow us to learn, remember and sometimes forget new things that we encounter in everyday life. This course is designed to investigate these abilities, how they operate in everyday life, and why they sometimes don't work. To better illustrate how memory and cognition operate in everyday life, the course includes vivid demonstrations and examples of those abilities. At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to define several complex aspects of cognition and memory (e.g., What is attention? What is forgetting? What is false memory?) and will understand the fundamental relationship between the brain and these behaviors. This course is taught each Spring semester.

Meet Chandler Blount, political science and sociology double major and Solutions Scholar"I lived in Draper, Utah for all of my life. Some of my favorite things to do are; spend time with friends and family, attend plays, and try new restaurants.  I am currently a part of a Pre-Law cohort, and the University Supreme Court, in addition to the Solutions Scholars. I am excited to learn more every day in order to prepare myself for law school. I eventually want to practice in LGBT advocacy law.  I am beyond thrilled to create many friendships, memories, and solutions to the world’s problems in the University of Utah’s inaugural Solutions Scholars cohort. 

I was interested in solutions scholars because I have always been passionate about LGBT equal rights issues. As an aspiring lawyer, it is my firm belief that one of the most effective ways to change the social views and stigmas of the LGBT community is through the law. I was drawn to Solutions Scholars because it is an excellent program that enables students to incite change for the issues they are passionate about before they are involved in the professional world."

Meet Isabella Lopes, health, society & policy major and Solutions Scholar! "I'm from Layton, UT which is typically about 40-45 minutes outside of Salt Lake. What drew me to the University of Utah was the medical program they have; wanting to be a doctor, I knew that I would find what I needed to pursue that goal at the U. I have a cultured background because my parents are from Brazil so I have a large appreciation for rice and beans along with samba music. I also love traveling, whether it be in state or out of country, I love to go places and see what the world has to offer. I really love spending time with my family, watching movies, reading, swimming and learning.

What interested me in Solutions Scholars was the content. Some of the topics that were mentioned was hunger and justice within our food system, women's rights, social justice and so on. I also was interested in the hands on projects we would be able to do within the program rather than just referring to textbooks and articles upon the subject."

Aside from how research could help me, I believe that advancements in the social and behavioral sciences will be integral to improving society's future.

Meet Taylor Silkey, anthropology major! "I grew up in a military family, and I've lived in a few different places, so I don't really have a "hometown". But Utah has got to be one of my favorite places I've lived in so far! I love all of the outdoor activities it has to offer, like hiking and snowboarding. And I also love the University of Utah and the degree I'm pursuing. The classes I'm taking analyze how human evolution, culture, and psychology affect health, which I think is super interesting and important. I'm also minoring in Spanish because I think it's an absolutely beautiful language, and want to have as many excuses to practice it as I can. Plus: knowing Spanish opens up so many more opportunities for work, travel, service, and communication! I'm optimistic that both of these areas of study will properly prepare me for my long-term goal of becoming a genetic counselor."

mohan sudabattulaStudent Spotlight

Mohan Sudabattula
Meet Mohan Sudabattula, Health, Society & Policy and Philosophy double major. He'll be the first student to present on the TEDx Salt Lake City stage this Saturday! Mohan is founder and executive director of Project Embrace, an international medical nonprofit that aims to reduce global health disparities and promote sustainable healthcare. Project Embrace does this through the reuse and repurposing of previously owned medical equipment from the U.S. to meet the need of patients worldwide.

“Ten years ago, I visited an orphanage in India where children suffered from these exact same diseases (of U.S. patients), but didn’t have access to the medical devices needed to treat them. Those images stuck with me. So, I started Project Embrace, a non-profit that repurposes unwanted medical devices for patients-in-need abroad. Right from the beginning, I knew I wanted to partner with that orphanage.” Read more.
