Diane Nalini de Kerckhove is a scientist and a communicator.
She is an assistant professor in the department of physics at Guelph and seems to have a love of instrumentation to explore both the small (1 micron microprobe) and the large as in astronomical.
She is also a jazz singer with several CDs in her discography.
But is she a science communicator? Here's the blurb on her latest CD:
Diane Nalini’s newest album, 'Kiss Me Like That,' is a captivating blend of standards and original songs celebrating humanity's fascination with the sky and stars.
'Kiss me like that'? The complete line from the title song is:
'Oh be a fine girl and kiss me like that.'
Sky? Stars? Hmm. Well, yes actually. Here's a passage from the Guelph Mercury, March 24, 2009:
She wrote the title song, Kiss Me Like That, as a mnemonic device to help students remember the order of star types.
