Jason Stoke, Ph.D.

Lecturer of Physics

I'm originally from Post Falls, which is just east of Spokane over the state line in Idaho. Even though Gonzaga University (GU) is not far from from my hometown, the path that led me to GU was a circuitous one. This journey began at Colorado State University...

I'm originally from Post Falls, which is just east of Spokane over the state line in Idaho. Even though Gonzaga University (GU) is not far from from my hometown, the path that led me to GU was a circuitous one. This journey began at Colorado State University (CSU) in Fort Collins, CO. During my years at CSU I discovered that physics was something that I really enjoyed doing, so I chose physics for a major and recieved my bachelors degree in it. Physics wasn't the only thing I found enjoyable during my time in Colorado. I was introduced to snowboarding and loved it. I loved it so much, I spent the first two years after getting my degree working in the ski/snowboard industry. I thought I would spend a couple of years applying my physics knowledge toward the study of "snowboard science" by experimenting with frictional forces of (low temperature solid phase hydrogen hydroxide) - (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene) interfaces; three dimensional kinematics and impulse interactions with immobile objects over very short time intervals. I didn't publish any of my research findings, but I do have a picture on my office door showing the results of one of my more infamous experiments.
