A Starring Role for Saint Mary’s Computational Astrophysics Prof

By Maroon & White | spring 2017

Looking for a scientifically approved dose of fun? Look no further than Dr. Rob Thacker’s weekly science column as part of CBC Radio 1 Mainstreet in Halifax. Dr. Thacker is a Professor and Tier II Canada Research Chair in the department of Astronomy and Physics at Saint Mary’s, and the Acting Director of the Institute for Computational Astrophysics (ICA). His focus for the new radio gig is computing, math, physics, astronomy, and technology, but don’t let that scare you! Those who know him expect a stellar performance!

Campus Notes: “I give because I believe in Saint Mary’s University.”
