Our November (barely) episode features Dr. Azure Avery, who is an Assistant Professor in the Physics department at Metropolitan State University of Denver. It was great to get her perspective as the only female professor in our department (CU Denver and Metro State combine all physics classes) and as someone who went through her physics undergrad as an older student. I feel like we barely scratched the surface, so I hope to have her back on the podcast to go more in depth about her research at a later date. I hope you all enjoy hearing about her journey to becoming a physics professor!
