ASX will be holding our monthly Star Talk on February 26 at 8pm. The speaker is Eric Poisson, professor of physics at the University of Guelph. The talk will be given in McLennan Physical Labs (60 St George Street). The room is number 103 on the first floor. This is a FREE event and open for all ages.
Eric Poisson was born in Montreal, and grew up in Rimouski and Quebec City, which he considers to be his home town. He obtained a BSc from Laval University, and then a MSc and PhD from the University of Alberta. After postdoctoral fellowships at the California Institute of Technology and Washington University in St. Louis, Eric joined the faculty at the University of Guelph, where he teaches physics at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and carries out research in gravitational physics, with a focus on black holes and gravitational waves.
