Brian Hosterman, PhD, received his Bachelor of Science in physics at Denison University in Granville, Ohio. He then attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where he earned both his Master of Science and PhD in physics. After graduating, he was hired as a postdoctoral research associate at the New College of Florida in Sarasota, Florida.

Hosterman is an experimental physicist, with a strong background in vibrational spectroscopy and x-ray diffraction. He has begun to synthesize and characterize materials with applications towards nuclear and renewable energies.

Hosterman is recruiting CMU physics majors to assist with these projects, which will help the students develop professional laboratory skills that will benefit the students in graduate school or careers after CMU.
