Join fellow U of T and Concordia University alumni and friends for a presentation on Leonardo da Vinci, Leonardo da Vinci: 500 Years of Genius. 2019 marks the commemoration of 500 years since the passing of Leonardo da Vinci. A presentation by Dr. Angelo B. Mingarelli (PhD 1979), from Carleton University, will provide a comprehensive look at the life and work of one of history's most fascinating people.

Dr. Angelo B. Mingarelli (PhD 1979) is an award-winning teacher, Professor at the School of Mathematics and Statistics at Carleton University and Chair of the Leonardo Cinquecento Committee at Carleton, where he has been an active teacher and researcher for the past 25 years. Dr. Mingarelli is the author of over 100 scientific articles and six books, two of which are educational and the rest are research oriented monographs. Prior to joining Carleton, he was Professor of Mathematics at the University of Ottawa for 12 years. In addition to learning about Leonardo da Vinci’s fascinating life and discoveries, Dr. Mingarelli is interested in creating art for future sentient artificially intelligent beings.
