Faculty Spotlight: Ashaki Rouff

“The problems that scientists are trying to solve affect people from all backgrounds from all over the world, so why shouldn’t everyone be participating?” ponders Ashaki Rouff. The associate professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences exemplifies the very change she wants to see in and out of the classrooms, labs, and upper echelons of the STEM professions. Rouff, who was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to pursue research in South America, is innovating in the lab and inspiring the next generation of STEM researchers.
