Thursdays at 9:45 a.m.

STEM Spots is a weekly look into science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Hosted by Dr. David Cornelison, professor in the department of Physics, Astronomy and Materials Science at Missouri State University, STEM Spots invites local experts to discuss advances, issues and theories dealing with all matters of STEM.

Missouri State University

This week on STEM Spot Dr. Corenlison speaks with  Lydia Lang and Merideth Vogel. Both Lang and Vogel are female physics students at Missouri State University. Listen in as they discuss Donna Strickland, the recent Nobel Prize winner, and what that means for women in science. They also discuss what challenges come from being a women in a STEM field.

This week on STEM Spots Dr. Dave Cornelison speaks with Jin Hu, Assistant professor at The University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, AR. Professor Hu works with experimental physics within the department of Physics at the university. Listen in as they discuss creating topilogical crystals and what we can learn from them.

On this episode of STEM Spots Dr. Cornelison speaks with Dr. Surajit Sen. Dr. Sen is a profesor of physics from the University at Buffalo. Dr. Sen studies Nonlinear dynamics of many particle systems, Non-equilibrium Statistical Physics, and Sociophysics. 

Listen in as they discuss how a granular system applies to our lives.


UC Davis

Today on STEM Spots Dr. Dave Cornelison speaks with  Dr. Korana Burke. Dr. Burke is a lecturer in the department of Mathematics at UC Davis in Davis, CA. Today the two discuss women in the sciences and where roadblocks are encountered.
