Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Damian Allis Damian Allis grew up in Jamesville, New York on a steady PBS diet of NOVA and Nature, usually either looking up at the sky or down at a book. His interest in science ultimately led him to a B.S. in Chemistry and a Ph.D. in Computational Chemistry from Syracuse University, with his current research focusing on energy storage, molecular electronics, nanoscale materials, drug design, and vibrational spectroscopy.

Damian joined the Syracuse Astronomical Society (SAS) in 2003 in order to finally commit to learning the basics of observational astronomy, then joined the Mohawk Valley Astronomical Society and Kopernik Astronomical Society soon after to learn more about astronomy activities, and fellow astronomers, in Central New York. After five years as president, webmaster, and newsletter editor for the SAS, he stepped down in 2012 to help start Central New York Observers (CNYO), a group dedicated to bringing astronomy and space science to the public through sidewalk astronomy and public lectures. CNYO hosts and/or provides support for many events throughout the year, including sessions at local State/County Parks, libraries, and in downtown Syracuse.
