Event Information

 

It is our great pleasure to invite you to our Annual Dinner on Wednesday 8 November 2017   at Hilton York, 1 Tower Street, York

The YPS Annual Dinner is an opportunity to enjoy each other’s company in a welcoming environment with good food and conversation. It is followed by a short reflection on our activities and an inspiring address from our guest speaker, Professor Brian Fulton.

Professor Brian Fulton is the Dean of Faculty for the Sciences at The University of York, a role that oversees this group of departments, supporting their activities in teaching, research, management, finance and human resources. A particular aim is to stimulate and encourage interdisciplinary activities.

Professor Fulton’s research area is nuclear physics, specialising in the study of nuclear reactions, which power explosive astrophysical objects, like Nova, X-ray Busters and Supernovae.  Since obtaining a PhD in 1977 he has been active in academic research and teaching, holding posts in the USA, a government research centre and universities.

We do hope you can join us in November.

Kind regards,

Catherine Brophy (Chair)
