STEM Spots: Identifying Pathogens In Aquatic Environments


In today's episode of STEM Spots, we talk to Dr. Babur Mirza, an assistant professor of biology at Missouri State University. Dr. Mirza is currently doing research on human pathogens in aquatic environments. Throughout this interview, he walks us through the process of conducting this research and identifying these pathogens. Listen to the segment below.  

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.
