Ginning Podcast Log

The dark, destructive tendencies of Chris Scheinert's youth have lay hidden for years. But thankfully, this 2016 chemical engineering grad and Young Alumni Council networking committee chair overcame his demons thoroughly enough to start a career in process automation in Singapore and Austin, Texas. More recently, he's returned to school, this time at Vanderbilt University, where he'll receive his MBA in May. It's a great story. Inspiring, even. Still, for the latest episode of the best podcast in all of higher education, listener discretion is advised. 

Move over DiCaprio, there's a new Leo on the scene. He's a mechanical engineering senior, outgoing Cupola president and the best thing to ever happen to Winnie the three-legged Golden Retriever. 

Tiny mics. Big dreams. Enjoy this conversation with sophomore Katie Day, whose passion for sustainability and alternative energy prompted her to pursue a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering as well as minors in nuclear power generation systems and sustainability studies. And of course she's a Cupola. 

Two syllables. Endless potential. Ladies and gentlemen, aerospace engineering senior Preet Shah. 

When you think of unsteady separated flows over rotating wings, multi-rotor aeromechanics, biomechanics of avian gust interactions, plume-surface interactions, pulsatile droplet-laden flows, heart valve flows, and respiratory diseases, who's the first person that comes to mind? Yeah, exactly. Ladies and gentlemen, Vrishank Raghav. 

You're about to hear a pavement probin' powerhouse drop all kinds of science to prove he's among the tallest of the asphalt giants. It's him, it's him, it's David Timm. 

Kate Preston is a junior in chemical engineering. And she's your new Miss Auburn. Enjoy! 

Her name is Arabic for "happiness." And boy has civil engineering master's student Afrah Kahn finally found herself at Auburn.
