Katie Mullaly

Cool Science Radio Co-Host

Science has been a passion of Katie Mullaly’s since she was a child: from staring up at the stars, hunting for fossils, exploring the geology of Uintah Basin (where she grew up), and always just wondering WHY? Katie took this love of science (and an innate ability to communicate and teach these complex topics) and formed both her graduate and undergraduate degrees around Science Communication.

Katie is also the author and publisher of the highly-acclaimed, Land of… Children’s Books series where she shares her passion for teaching, creating greater awareness, and living a conscious life.  

Katie has a BS in Science Communication and an MS in Professional Master of Science and Technology, both from the University of Utah, and is working on a “PhD” in being a better human. She will be working on her dissertation on being a conscious, caring, more connected person for the rest of her life, and looks forward to sharing that work with anyone who will read her books, and listen to Cool Science Radio.  

  • Park City Water Quality and Treatment Manager Michelle De Haan and Water Quality Scientist Iwona Goodley talk about the new 3 Kings water treatment plant and the science behind providing us with clean water, then, Michael Stewart and graduate student Chloe Marks of the University of Illinois highlight Utah's diverse landscapes in their Geology Field Camp.
  • Geology students from the University of Illinois are back in Utah experiencing, in real life, geology some have only seen in textbooks. The group of 36 students is exploring the west from the Wasatch Mountains, to Moab, to Wyoming in order to fully immerse themselves in the geology of this diverse region. Michael Stewart of the University of Illinois and Chloe Marks, graduate student and previous field camp attendee, highlight this summer’s Geology Field Camp.https://www.fieldcamp.org
  • Many heavy metals are found in the water in old mining tunnels around Park City. This water is what eventually makes it to our taps as drinking water. Thanks to the new 3 Kings Water Treatment plant, these and other contaminants are being pulled out before the water hits our taps. Park City Water Quality and Treatment Manager Michelle De Haan and Water Quality Scientist Iwona Goodley talk about the new 3 Kings water treatment plant and the science behind providing us with clean water.
  • Nobel Prize-winning scientist Thomas Cech, who has worked on RNA for his whole career, presents his new book, "The Catalyst: RNA and the Quest to Unlock Life’s Deepest Secrets." Then, Nadina Galle, 2024 National Geographic Explorer and ecological engineer, discusses her book "The Nature of Our Cities: Harnessing the Power of the Natural World to Survive a Changing Planet."

  • Sabrina Sholts, curator of biological anthropology at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, and author of the new book, “The Human Disease: How We Create Pandemics, from our Bodies to our Beliefs,” talks about humans' role and responsibility in diseases and pandemics. Then, Roberto Casati, director of the Jean Nicod Institute and professor at the School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences in Paris, shares more about maps, what they are and how they work in his new book “The Cognitive Life of Maps."
  • Maps are so much more than 2D representations of the terrain. They can be alive, they can be cognitive. Maps have power, and they can be found in a wide variety of places, not just folded up in your backpack. Roberto Casati, director of the Jean Nicod Institute and professor at the School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences in Paris, shares more about maps, what they are and how they work in his new book “The Cognitive Life of Maps."
