Shubhra Gangopadhyay is the one of the few female faculty at MU’s Center for Micro/Nano Systems and Nanotechnology. She’s also the one in charge of developing the center. In the Electrical and Computer Engineering department, of which Gangopadhyay is the LaPierre Endowed Chair Professor, she is one of three women. “There is a shortage of female scientists and female professors, in general,” Gangopadhyay says. “And in engineering, it is really not good.”
John Zemke, Director of the Center for eResearch, introduces SyndicateMizzou and its mission of disseminating the research and creative activities going on at the University of Missouri.
“We’re really fortunate to have the museum, because we’re material people, and nothing can substitute for going to see the physical object.” Stanton recommends visiting the illuminated leaves of manuscripts on display at the Museum of Art and Archaeology.
Gangopadhyay’s future plans include helping to establish a Nanotech Consortium, to be headquartered in Columbia, which will work closely with large corporations, such as Boeing, to develop new technology.
