Mott Lecture Theatre, 6pm Tuesday 24th April

Abstract from Dr Padman:
"I have what you might call a "portfolio" career, with several distinct shifts in emphasis along the way. In my talk I will show that mistakes are rarely terminal; and that Physics teaches skills which are key to success in a very wide range of areas. I will also try to convey just why radio-astronomy is so fascinating for a physicist."
