Anahi Yerman was a UROP scholar Fall 2021-Spring 2022, and graduated in 2022 with a degree in both Anthropology and Philosophy of Science. Her undergraduate research project was “Cross-National Analysis of Sex Ratio and Gender Inequality on the Age at First Marriage and the Spousal Age Gap.” Anahi is currently working on obtaining a Masters of Anthropology at the University of Utah. She said that “UROP helped me cultivate the skills necessary to conduct my own research and it helped me realize that I could be a successful researcher.” https://www.linkedin.com/in/anahi-yerman-994078196/
