The Welsh Lectures have been held annually since 1975 in honour of H.L. Welsh, a distinguished former faculty member in the Physics Department. They are the major public event in the life of the Department of Physics and are intended to celebrate discoveries in physics and their broader impact. They are intended to be broadly accessible to an audience drawn from across the university, other academic institutions and the interested public.

The program includes two lectures, and moves from telescopic to microscopic themes this year: following Dr. Puget’s talk Dr. Robert Austin, Department of Physics, Princeton University will speak at 3:30 PM on the topic “Bacteria are People too.”

Dr. Puget will also give the CITA seminar Thursday, May 02, 2013, 3:10 PM in MP 102.
