Dr. Chris Stockdale
Department of Physics
Dr. Stockdale has been at Marquette since 2003 and is serving as a seminar leader for
the second time. He's a radio astronomer who uses the Very Large Array telescope in
New Mexico and the Australia Telescope Compact Array to observe supernova explosions to explore how the most massive stars in the Universe 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 2016.
