Professor Paul Delaney

Speaker: Professor Paul Delaney, York University.

Topic: “Water, water everywhere?”

Our understanding of our own solar system has changed significantly since the advent of spacecraft exploration. Water was once believed very scarce in our corner of the galaxy but we now realize this is not the case. From understanding where our own planet’s water riches originated to the proliferation of the so called water worlds, this presentation will discuss the evolution of this “sea change” in thinking and its implication for the search for life on exoplanets.

Paul Delaney is a senior lecturer and professor of physics and astronomy at York University in Toronto. He is also the director of the Division of Natural Science within the Faculty of Science at York, as well as the Master of Bethune College at York. He has his Master’s degree in science and has taught at York University since 1986. He earned his Bachelors in Science in Experimental Physics at the Australian National University in Canberra and his master’s degree in astronomy at the University of Victoria.

Paul has been the recipient of many faculty of science and engineering awards at York University. One of his classes deals with the possibility of life on Mars. He is also the director of the observatory at the York University, and its outreach program. In the past, he has also worked as a nuclear physicist at the Atomic Energy of Canada, and a support astronomer with the McGraw-Hill Observatory in Tucson, Arizona. He holds both Australian and Canadian citizenship, and resides in Simcoe County with his wife – whom he met while attending the University of Victoria – and their two sons.
