Gravity: Guests

Dr. Kathryn Devine

Associate Professor of Physics, College of Idaho

I am originally from Rochester, Minnesota. As an undergraduate, I studied physics at Carleton College, a small liberal arts college in Minnesota. I went on to receive my Ph.D. in Astronomy from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin. After I completed my graduate studies, I moved to Boise, Idaho to join the physics faculty at the College of Idaho. My primary research focus is on star formation. My current projects use infrared and radio wavelengths to study "Galactic bubbles," expanding regions of dust and gas around young, massive stars. For fun, I enjoy many of the outdoor activities that Idaho has in abundance, including hiking, skiing, and climbing.

Past guests for this topic include: Pamila Ward, Jake Forsberg, Brian Pierre, Alex Miller.
