This will be a one hour virtual event where Carie will share her passion of science with us. It will be an opportunity for each of us to remember our passion and why we want to share it.
Carie Frantz is an assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Weber State University in Ogden, where she also co-directs the Environmental Science Program. Before coming to Weber State in 2016, she did her B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Washington, her Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Southern California where she was trained as a geomicrobiologist, then did a postdoc studying melting Arctic sea ice at the University of Washington's Applied Physics Laboratory. Since arriving in Utah she has applied her expertise in microbe-mineral interactions and climate change to study Great Salt Lake's microbialites. She is passionate about undergraduate research as an educational tool and has engaged over seventy Weber State students in research projects focused on Great Salt Lake and other environmental systems along the Wasatch Front. Although she pretends that she moved here for Great Salt Lake's amazing microbial carbonates, she really came here for the skiing.
