Public Lectures, Talks, and Programs
I am keenly interested in public education. The public is fascinated with fundamental science, especially astronomy and astrophysics. It is both enjoyable and rewarding to give public presentations, and through the years I have given talks at a number of venues including schools, amateur astronomy clubs, Café Scientifiques, Science in the City, as well as on radio and television. Here is a sampling of some recent events and programs:
> I was part of an episode entitled “A Star is Born” (2003), on the popular CBC radio program, “Quirks and Quarks”;
> Café Scientifique, Ralph Pudritz and Doug Welch, on "Planetary Systems and Extraterrestrial Life", Oct. 4, 2006, in Hamilton, Ontario.
I have recently been recognized for my efforts in the area of science outreach.
