"Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering" Workshop Student Competition

2019 Winners

Katie ChambersKatie Chambers
Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering, University of Colorado Boulder

Katie Chambers is a third-year doctoral student in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder, pursuing certificates in Engineering for Developing Communities and Science & Technology Policy. Her doctoral research focuses on the effects of natural hazards on sanitation systems in developing communities, specifically the re-adoption of latrines following flood events in Ethiopia. She is broadly interested in the use of science (and role of scientists) in the development and evaluation of policy, particularly in international contexts. Read Katie's reflections from the AAAS “CASE” Workshop

Claire LammanClaire Lamman
Astrophysics and Physics, University of Colorado Boulder

Claire Lamman is a Boettcher scholar working towards a BA in astrophysics and physics. She is currently analyzing a large survey of M dwarfs (the smallest, coolest type of star), which will help astronomers studying stellar formation and aid in the search for planets around these stars. Outside of research, Claire spends a lot of my time developing and presenting shows at CU’s Fiske Planetarium. She loves sharing astronomy with others and has found many great opportunities at CU to do so, especially through CU STARS, a group that focuses on improving the inclusivity and accessibility of astronomy. Claire will be attending an astronomy PhD program in the fall, which will hopefully set her up for her ultimate goal: a research position with an emphasis on scientific advocacy and outreach. Read Claire's reflections from the AAAS “CASE” Workshop.

Danielle LemmonDanielle Lemmon
Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, University of Colorado Boulder

Danielle Lemmon is a 4th year PhD Candidate and an NSF graduate research fellow in the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences department at CU Boulder. She studies El Niño Southern Oscillation dynamics with a keen focus on science policy implications. Her passions include climate justice, pedagogical methods, and intersectional social justice. She aspires to run for public office as a queer woman of color and as a climate scientist. Read Danielle's reflections from the AAAS “CASE” Workshop.

Madeline Polmear Madeline Polmear
Civil Engineering, University of Colorado Boulder

Madeline Polmear is a PhD candidate and research assistant in Civil Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder, where she also completed her Bachelor’s in environmental engineering and Master’s in civil engineering. Her research focuses on engineering education related to ethics and the societal impacts of engineering and technology. Read Madeline's reflections from the AAAS “CASE” Workshop.
