Alumni Spotlight


Evgeniy (Ev) Shishkin (Dodge City, KS), graduated from K-State in May 2012 with a degree in Chemical Engineering. At K-State, he was credited as a contributor to two published articles and was involved with Phi Kappa Theta fraternity. Ev had a job offer lined up with Koch Industries a year before he graduated and continues to work there today. Although he was learning a lot, Ev yearned for the stimulation he experienced doing research as an undergraduate at K-State. That’s when he got the idea for his new podcast: Verge of Discovery.

“I started the Verge of Discovery Podcast as a way to continue my knowledge seeking and sharing after college.  I wanted to bring the most recent developments in the field of science and technology (my true passions) to everyone who wanted to learn more.  I wanted to engage the brightest minds around the world to share their knowledge and experience and inspire everyone, including DSP students, to continue their work and reach even higher to achieve greatness,” he explains.

We encourage all DSP students, past and present, to learn more about the Verge of Discovery Podcast by liking them on Facebook and following them on Twitter. You can also visit the website to learn more about Ev and the podcast.
