Scientist Spotlight: Tyree Cowell
Tyree Cowell is a Research Associate who has been with SoarTech since 2018. Tyree joined the company as an intern after presenting her undergraduate thesis at the UM Cognitive Science Colloquium, where she caught the attention of Sr. Scientist Jack Zaientz, who encouraged her to apply.
With two parents who have dedicated their lives to cancer research, Tyree has always known she wanted to be involved in scientific pursuits. Throughout school, Tyree explored the many different avenues of research that Cognitive Science had to offer and decided to pursue a career with a focus on humans. When not supporting project work at SoarTech, Tyree is an avid choir singer, kick-boxer, and hiker when Michigan weather allows.
“Without a doubt, my favorite thing about SoarTech is the people,” Tyree said. “Everyone here has a genuinely curious mind. Not only do they want to solve the problems presented to them, but they also want to hear any and all ideas about creative ways to solve that problem.”
