About The Speakers

Maggie Wener-Washburn

Director of STEM Boomerang

Dr. Maggie Werner-Washburne is Mexican/German. She is a Regent's Professor emerita in Biology at the University of New Mexico and Past-President of SACNAS (2013-15), an AAAS Lifetime Mentor (2017), AAAS Fellow, 2011 Harvard Foundation Distinguished Scientist, and a recipient of two US Presidential awards for research and excellence in science, engineering, and math mentoring. Her research was funded continuously by NIH, NSF, and DOE. Dr. Werner-Washburne has directed the NIH-funded UNM-Initiatives to Maximize Student Development (IMSD) program for student research since 2003.

Dr. Werner-Washburne received a BA in English from Stanford. After graduation, she lived in Mexico, Central, and South America, Alaska, and Minnesota—a walkabout that led to her becoming a scientist. Maggie lived in Western Samoa and New Zealand and completed an MS in botany at the University of Hawaii, and a PhD in botany with a minor in biochemistry and post doctoral research in yeast genetics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her research at UNM lead to a greater understanding of stationary phase in yeast and led to collaborations with many computer scientists and engineers at UNM, Sandia, and around the US.

Dr. Werner-Washburne is widely recognized for her successful work with undergraduate and graduate students from all backgrounds. Her approach helps students explore who they are and what they bring to the table and inspires resilience. Her latest project, Operation STEM Boomerang, is aimed at bringing our educated young professionals, our seed corn, back to NM for careers in every sector.
