Available to All Users
Nuclear science is providing amazing solutions to problems in life sciences including medicine and agriculture. This Young Members Group Spotlight on Nuclear Careers featured Katherina Stapelmann talking about her research with plasmas and career in nuclear science.
About Katherina StapelmannStapelmann is an assistant professor of nuclear engineering at North Carolina State University. She received her PhD in electrical engineering from Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, in 2013, where she continued as postdoc (2014) and assistant professor of electrical engineering (2015-2017) before she joined NC State in 2017. Stapelmann’s research interests lie in the experimental investigation of generation and transport of reactive species for life science applications, e.g. plasma medicine and plasma agriculture.
