Ms. Ashley Hicks received her BS in Physics from UCA in 2013 and a Masters of Science in Engineering from UT Austin in 2015. An extended vacation brought her back to Arkansas and eventually the Resident Master position in STEM@Arkansas. In her downtime, she enjoys practicing kitchen chemistry (cooking), needlepoint, and hiking with her other half. Dr. Jeff Beyerl received his PhD in Mathematics from Clemson University in 2012. He spent a year teaching at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, before packing up and heading to UCA where he is now an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics. A self proclaimed Wikipedian and the Pokemon Master of Conway, Dr. Beyerl enjoys walking Conway and playing PokemonGo. When he’s not out and about, he’s at home in STEM@Arkansas Hall with Ms. Hicks and their two cats (Alice and Oliver). Together they appreciate watching old sci-fi shows or playing video games, and enjoy taking the opportunity to travel when it arises.
