Ben Stottrup joined Augsburg’s Physics Department in 2005. Since then, he has enjoyed a front row seat to watch and assist Augsburg’s science majors start their careers and pursue their own adventures.  While at Augsburg, he has built a research lab focused on biomaterials, soft, and squishy interfaces. This work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Minnesota Space Grant Consortium, as well as private donors and foundations.  In the classroom, he has taught across nearly the entire physics curriculum with a focus on how experiential education in science labs can build professional skills for students. Through his Science of Food and Cooking course he hopes to share his curiosity and interest in biomaterials to Augsburg’s wider community.

The Christensen Vocation Lunch is an event that strengthens the concept of vocation at Augsburg for faculty and staff by providing role models from within the community to share a presentation on their sense of call and life journey.
