A month of research at in Nebraska has given host Dr. David Cornelison the opportunity to meet two people who see things as he does, at least on the subject of science.   From the University of Nebraska physics department, Jocelyn Bosley and Brad Nordell have a new role to play as podcasts hosts.  Their new podcast, “Science! With Friends” focuses on the who behind the what in science.  

Dr. David Cornelison has been working as an educator and scientist in Arizona and Missouri universities for the last 32 years. From 2010-2018, he was the head of the Department of Physics, Astronomy and Materials Science at Missouri State University. His research interests lie at the intersection of experimental condensed-matter physics and astrophysics, while his educational efforts have focused on outreach to the K-12 school system. Most of all, he believes in curiosity-driven learning in the sciences and all other fields.
