Meet the Prof: Nadia Kaltcheva
The following faculty Q&A was submitted by the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Faculty Advocacy Committee, a committee of the Faculty Senate. Kenneth Price, associate professor of mathematics, wrote the introduction.
I am pleased to introduce Dr. Nadia Kaltcheva, associate professor of physics/astronomy at UW Oshkosh. Dr. Kaltcheva’s scholarly work in astronomy has taken her around the world to professional positions in Bulgaria, Chile, Denmark, Germany, India, Scotland and South Africa. She shares her love of science through teaching and has directed 10 student conference presentations in the past two years alone.
Many students in my classes have worked with Dr. Kaltcheva. They speak very highly of their experiences completing research projects with her. It is encouraging to see fellow faculty making a difference in the professional lives of our students. The picture below shows Nadia with her husband, Matey.
