Prof to be Featured on National CBC Radio

U of G physics professor and jazz musician Diane Nalini de Kerckhove will be featured on the CBC radio program Jazz Beat on Sunday, March 26.

The national radio program airs at 8 p.m. on CBC Radio Two and at 11:05 p.m. on CBC Radio One. It may also be accessed via the Internet.

A former Rhodes scholar, de Kerckhove, who drops her last name when she hits the stage or the recording studio, joined the U of G faculty in July 2005. As a physics professor, she is building Canada’s first one-micron proton microprobe. As a jazz musician, she has performed for former U.S. president Bill Clinton, Sir Paul McCartney, the President of Malta and the Canadian High Commissioner to London. She has also sung at international music festivals in London, Malta, Montreal and Toronto.

Her third album is a project devoted to the words of William Shakespeare, for which she has written all the music. The album will be premiered at U of G May 25, with the concert serving as a kick off event for the University’s “Shakespeare — Made in Canada” festival planned for January to May 2007.
