Congratulations to Dr. Karletta Chief on receiving the University Distinguished Outreach Faculty Award for 2021!
Exploring the interdisciplinary facets of environmental science, Mariah Victoria Cathey (BS`21) wants to put her experience as an ENVS student to work in the clean beauty industry.
Inspired by her experience in the STEM fields, Nyah Maria Torres (BS Environmental Science '22) wants to solve complex environmental issues.
Researching if native desert plant species growing in storm water drainage basins are dangerous for human consumption, Jaden Iñiguez (BS Environmental Science ‘21) is on her way to creating solutions to protect both our earth and our communities.
Doctoral candidate María Touceda-Suárez collaborates with a local living agricultural museum, Mission Garden, to better understand how land use impacts microbial communities.
Inspired by her international travels in the military and exposure to environmental issues, Monicka LaShawn Raybon (BS Environmental Science’ 22) is pursuing her online environmental degree while stationed abroad in England.
As a first-generation college student and Diné (Navajo), Samantha Yazzie (BS Environmental Science '20) decided on an environmental science degree because she didn’t want her young family members growing up in a polluted world. Her independent study project investigates the potential of carbon sequestration, the capturing and storing of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to mitigate climate change, on the Navajo Nation.
For her pioneering engagement and partnership with Indigenous communities leading to transformative outcomes, hydrologist and faculty Karletta Chief (Diné) will be one of 36 American Geophysical Union honorees this year, receiving the AGU Ambassador Award and a conferred fellowship.
Doctoral candidate Richelle Thomas leads a study where she combines a Westernized laboratory-based approach with Indigenous perspectives to look at the effects of arsenic and uranium on traditional medicinal plants.
One of only a few female Navajo hydrologists in the world, Nikki Tulley is a Ph.D. student who has dedicated her life to tackling water insecurity and restoring balance to her homeland. Watch the short film about how this young scientist gives us a glimpse of her life and how her work fuses the power and resiliency of indigenous methodology with Western science to inspire the next generation of Navajo scientists.
