August 2008:
Millsaps Physics welcomes Dr. Shadow JQ Robinson as a new assistant professor of physics. Dr. Robinson comes from the University of Southern Indiana where he has spent the past 5 years. At the University of Southern Indiana, Dr. Robinson was well known as both a scientist in theoretical nuclear physics publishing many papers in theoretical nuclear structure as well as an educator where he won the University of Southern Indiana Foundation Outstanding Teaching by New Faculty Award. We are very excited to have Dr. Robinson and the expertise and experience he brings.
