Solveig Olson

Muth Lab

Hello, my name is Solveig Olson and I am a rising senior at Grinnell College, Iowa where I am a double major studying biology and gender studies. I grew up in rural Minnesota which fostered my interest in the natural world and its systems. So far, one of the ways I have followed this interest is by studying abroad in Kimana, Kenya for a semester, during which I focused on the ecology and conservation of endangered species. While there I had the chance to work closely with local communities and gain a more nuanced understanding of how humans and ecosystems interact and affect each other long-term. I am especially passionate about conservation and making scientific information more accessible to local communities. This summer I will be working with Dr Muth in his lab during the BUEE program. I have never been to New York so I am excited to experience the city. In my spare time I enjoy fiber crafts, spending time with friends, and cooking.
