Dr. Chris Stockdale
Department of Physics
Dr. Stockdale is a radio astronomer who uses the Very Large Array telescope in New Mexico and the Autralia Telescope Compact Array to observe supernova explosions to explore how the most massive stars in the University die. As these stars die, they produce and distribute the building blocks of life into the cosmos. He's an avid reader, enjoying science fiction and history, as well as being a long time comic book collector.
Dr. Stockdale enjoys visiting museums and historic sites, catching the latest movies, and watching college football in the fall. He's looking forward to participating in the Introduction to Inquiry and getting to know some of the members of the class of 2017. It's a wonderful way to for freshmen students to get acclimated to college life and to make some good friends.
