Meet Your Board Members
I spent 34 years as a full-time faculty member in the Physics Department, teaching a variety of classes from Introductory Astronomy and second year Mechanics and Relativity to upper-level Condensed Matter and Quantum Mechanics. After retirement in 2011, I continued to teach Introductory Astronomy for six years.
My research centered around the magnetic properties of rare earth elements, studied by neutron scattering using the NRU Reactor at Chalk River.
I was a member of the Executive of the DFA for most of the 34 years, including a year as President (1989/90). I was a member of the Grievance Committee (for most of 1989-2011), including three years as Chair, and successfully completed a number of actions where our pensions were threatened. In addition, I was co-chair of the Association-Board Committee (1987/8, 1997/8 and 2008/11), a parity committee of the DFA and the BoG, charged with interpreting and applying the Collective Agreement.
I have been a member of the Board of Directors of the ADRP since just after retirement and a member of its Benefits Committee, which I chaired for several years, for most of that time.
