Mondy-Carroll Lecture Jan. 28 at WBC

Dr. Chary Rangacharyulu will present this year’s Mondy-Carroll Lectureship at Williams Baptist College. His address is entitled “What’s the Matter with Space, Time and Matter?: How Our Ideas of the World Changed from Newton to Einstein to the Present Day.” The lecture is set for Thursday, Jan. 28, in WBC’s Sloan Center.

Rangacharyulu is a professor of physics and engineering physics at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada. He is a nuclear physicist whose research focuses on the structure and symmetry of the subatomic world.

His professional collaborations include work in Germany and Japan, and he is an adjunct faculty member with the Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science and Technology in Arusha, Tanzania, where he helps train nuclear scientists and engineers. Chary also teaches graduate courses for nuclear science and technology students in Vietnam and has recently begun a new partnership with the Korean Atomic Energy Research Institute focusing on medical isotopes.

The Mondy-Carroll Lectureship, which deals with the natural sciences, was endowed by the late Dr. Nell Mondy of Ithaca, N.Y. Mondy was a Pocahontas, Ark., native who named the lectureship in honor of several late relatives from the Pocahontas and Walnut Ridge area.

Rangacharyulu’s lecture will begin at 7:00 p.m., and will be held in room 101 of WBC’s Sloan Center. There is no cost to attend and the public is invited.
