Diversifying the STEM field 

Despite doubting his capability in the STEM field because of his under-representativeness, Alex Margarito found his place as a high school chemistry lecturer to advocate for diversity in education. He was inspired by Dr. Dan Jaffe to pursue higher education in atmospheric chemistry research and teaching, aiming to provide an inclusive educational environment for students from various backgrounds.

Husky Highlights is a seminar series featuring advanced research from UW Bothell faculty and staff across fields. Dr. Dan Jaffe’s research on air quality with Dr. Brandon Finley received support from the 2022 UW Bothell SRCP Seed Grant, which aims to provide competitive support for faculties and librarians in all disciplines at UW Bothell. The program funds up to $250,000 annually to develop scholarships, research capacity, and external resources across campus.
