An Aussie astronomer in Canada

His accomplishments would sound far more impressive if he didn't admit that he has to read "Hockey for Dummies." I mean, he did spend several years in Boston - you would have thought he would have picked up something. Still, let's all welcome him to Canada - don't forget to apologize for the Leafs (joke)(kinda)

In January 2015, Bryan Gaensler began his tenure as director of the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Toronto. Gaensler is a leading international researcher in cosmic magnetism, supernova explosions and interstellar gas. He was the founding director of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO) and an Australian Laureate Fellow at the Sydney Institute for Astronomy at the University of Sydney; he has also held positions at MIT, the Smithsonian and Harvard. In 1999, he was named Young Australian of the Year.
