Catherine Mader


Mader grew up in Colorado and became hooked on Physics in her high school Physics class.  After four years at the Colorado School of Mines,  she decided to stay for another year to get a Masters of Science degree.  That was so fun,  that she decided to pursue a Ph. D. at Michigan State University.  Along the way,  she discovered she enjoyed teaching as much as she enjoyed research and so after completing her degree at Michigan State,  she joined the faculty at Hope College.
