Clare Yu Interviews Caroline Boyd on Radio Physics
Caroline Boyd was a rising senior at Aspen High School in 2012 when she worked as a go-fer during the Aspen Center for Physics’ 50th celebration. She was inspired by her conversations with physicists at the Center to work in a lab when she went to Colorado College. This led Caroline to graduate work in the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology at University of California, Berkeley where she is now a doctoral candidate in Microbiology. In this interview, a reversal of our usual format, physics professor Clare Yu (University of California, Irvine), a member of the Aspen Center for Physics, probes Caroline’s research interests and shares her enthusiasm for virology and experimental research.
Radio Physics is for everyone! You don't have to be a scientist or even an aficionado to be fascinated by the questions and answers that you'll hear between 4:30 and 5:00 on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Radio Physics is a new collaboration with top high school physics students from Aspen to Rifle, the Aspen Center for Physics, and KDNK Community Radio in Carbondale. Students interview one of the more than 1,000 physicists who visit the Aspen Center for Physics every year. You'll want to know the answer to the questions that they ask. Tune in!
