Kennedy-Dittmer Wedding


Kennedy-Dittmer Wedding

The Department of Physics and Astronomy and the de Bruyn research group were well-represented at the wedding of Erin Kennedy (B.Sc. in Physics, 2011) and Andrew Dittmer (B.Sc. in Physics, 2010), which took place Saturday, August 24, 2013. Erin and Andrew met when they were on the executive of PASA. Erin is now teaching in Waterloo, and Andrew works for Trudell Medical in London. The happy couple plans to live in Woodstock, because, of course, compromise is a key to a successful marriage. Shown in the photo are (L-R) are past and present P&A Department members Matt Quinn, Andrew Dittmer, John de Bruyn, Erin Kennedy, Justin Bondy, Peter Legg, Sam Chippin, Allison Hill, Alex De Souza, and Natalie Kehl. Andrew (2010), Erin (2011), Natalie (2010), and Justin (2010) all did their honors projects in our group, and Sam, Andrew, Justin, and Natalie all worked in our group for at least one summer.


Group meeting

Our group meeting this Friday will take the form of a mini-conference. Everyone (including the boss) will give a 10-minute talk on their research project. See you at 1:00 in PAB 26!  

Summer is drawing to a close….

The end of August is always a busy time. I have just returned from a short vacation, meaning that there is lots of catching up to do. There is all that work I had planned to do over the summer, but haven’t had time to get to yet, and all that great new data my students have produced over the last few months. Plus, of course, it is now time to start thinking about teaching in the fall.
