Episode 1 - Hanging out with Hana
Our first episode, at last!
My guest is the inspiring Hana Jaafari! She is a physics major specializing in biophysics at Texas Christian University, and we met earlier this year at the Brownsville, TX Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics. Hana is one of the smartest, most driven people I know, so it was awesome to have her help getting the podcast ready for launch. She is also the president of TCU's chapter of the Society for Physics Students and founder of TCU's Women in Science organization.
In this episode, we got to discuss:
Hana's pathway to physics
Our research internships and how we got 'em
Graduate school and the so-called "two-body problem"
Tim Hunt's girl trouble
Why there should be more crying in science
Hopping on the STEM train... and role models
Family talk - the academic track and when to have kids
The immense resource that is the APS website
Thank you for listening, and please send all questions and feedback to thetattooedphysicist AT gmail.com - I would love to hear from you!
Until next time...
