Students, Scientists and Stakeholders Podcast

Students, Scientists and Stakeholders is the podcast for NCAS-M and NCAS-M II.

The Students, Scientists and Stakeholders podcast gives listeners the opportunity to learn all there is to know about NCAS-M & NCAS-M II from the most important people that make the center work: students, scientists and stakeholders.

2022 Faculty Series

The next series is the “2022 Fellows Series,” and it offers listeners a chance to hear in-depth stories and experiences from our faculty members. Listeners have the chance to learn how they joined the center, hear details about their research and mentoring efforts and the impact they think NCAS-M has in the STEM industry.

The series is hosted by Dr. Tia C. M. Tyree, a professor in Howard University’s Cathy Hughes School of Communications. She is a longtime member of both the NCAS and NCAS-M grants.

  • Episode 1: Dr. William Stockwell
    Podcast host Dr. Tia C. M. Tyree talks with guest Dr. William Stockwell of the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). He is a research Professor in the Department of Physics at UTEP and Professor Emeritus at Howard University. He discusses what started his love for science, his most important research projects, mentoring NCAS-M students and the impact of center in the science industry.
  • Episode 2: Dr. Thomas Gill
    Podcast host Dr. Tia C. M. Tyree talks with guest Dr. Thomas Gill of the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). He is a faculty member in the Department of Geological Sciences and the Environmental Science and Engineering Program.

    In a bonus episode, podcast host Dr. Tia C. M. Tyree speaks with guest Dr. Rosa Fitzgerald who is the center’s lead investigator from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). She’s a Professor in Physics with research interests in air quality, aerosol research, atmospheric optics, radiative transfer and remote sensing. As a member of the center since its initial funding from NOAA, she reflects on her longtime commitment to the center, students and research.  

2021 Fellows Series

The first five episodes are a part of a student-led series called “2021 Fellows Series.” It helped listeners explore the educational and career opportunities available at NOAA through NCAS-M.

Hosted by Camryn Billett, a NCAS-M fellow from Howard University, these episodes feature unique stories from five students in the NCAS-M program.
