Dr. Gintaras Duda, Catholic cosmologist and Chair of Physics at Creighton University, asks: how can we reconcile science with belief in a personal Christian God? Astonishment and wonder offer one route for this fundamental reconciliation. Dr. Duda will stress the fundamental need for theological and philosophical perspectives on some of the biggest questions in cosmology today.

Gintaras Duda is a professor and chair of the department of physics at Creighton University. Trained as a particle theorist, his primary disciplinary research interest is the problem of dark matter: composition, detection, and fundamental theories/origins. In addition to astro-particle physics/cosmology, he is also involved heavily in physics education research and is deeply interested in questions of science and religion. He was named the 2013 Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching Outstanding Master’s Universities and Colleges National Professor of the Year.
