Featuring Guest Speaker Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Ralf Bergmann from Bremen

Prof. Dr. Ralf Bergmann, born 1962, is married, has three grown up children and lives in Bremen, Germany. He studied Physics in Heidelberg and Freiburg, obtained his doctorate at the University of Stuttgart in 1991 and worked as a postdoc in Sydney, Australia. He spent a longer period of research in Stuttgart, worked in industry for several years and obtained a professorship at the University of Bremen in 2008. 

As a scientist working in the area of physics and as a Christian, his special interest is in the relation of natural science and Christian faith and its relevance for modern society.
