Aggies Solve Problems

Seth Lyman is a research associate professor and the director of USU’s Bingham Research Center. As a Uintah Basin resident, he’s seen the effects of poor air quality first hand. That’s why he’s working to inform policy and regulation to improve emissions that can worsen Utah’s air quality during inversions — and training the next generation of students to do the same, like Makenzie Holmes.

Researchers at Utah State University like Seth exist on the cutting edge of science, constantly facilitating access to data and information to make informed decisions. For example, the Institute of Land, Water, and Air was created in 2021 to connect researchers from USU to problem solvers and key decision makers around Utah to improve quality of life for all residents.
