Introducing Retreat Keynote Speaker Kent Cullers, Ph.D., Director of R&D at the SETI Institute

Kent Cullers, PhD, Director of R&D at the SETI Institute, is Leadership Teacher's keynote speaker at our kickoff retreat on Saturday, October 4th at the Barbara C. Harris Center in Greenfield, NH.

Kent Cullers, Ph.D., is Director of Research and Development at the SETI Institute. Blind since birth, Cullers earned his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley in 1980, becoming the first totally blind physicist in the world. Cullers immediately joined NASA’s Ames Research Center, and later, the SETI Institute, as a founding member. He designed detection algorithms for weak signals, currently used for SETI; for finding early signs of breast cancer in diagnostic mammograms; and for direct photometric detection of Earth-sized planets. A National Merit Scholar, Cullers has been the recipient of many honors and awards, including NASA’s Exceptional Engineering Achievement medal and the Federal Employee of the Year award. Cullers is a popular guest lecturer and travels extensively. He’s on the Board of Directors of the Sensory Access Foundation and the Peninsula Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Cullers earned his first amateur radio operator license at age eleven, in 1961, and he’s still listening for that distant transmission.

Special Note: Cullers was a consultant for the movie Contact and the inspiration for one of the characters in the movie.
