Assistant Professor of Physics Dr. Chris Austin’s best OC memories: “As a student, my best memory was the Summer Vienna Trip. As a professor, my best memory was launching a balloon with weather equipment that reached a height of 97,250 feet. We chased the balloon halfway to Arkansas and did not recover it until someone called the next day saying they found it.”

He is in the American Association of Physics Teachers, a former member in the Society of Physics Students-National Chapter and a former member in the Society of Physics Students-Local Chapter. Dr. Austin also has been a judge for science fairs.
