Observatory Director
Mobile: 327-1892

Bill is a retired surgeon from Canada who moved to Cayman in 1997 after a successful medical career. With a life-long interest in science and, as an amateur astronomer in his teens, Bill now had the time to build his "dream" telescope. Though hurricane Ivan destroyed most of the first version in 2004, it was rebuilt and offered in donation to President Roy Bodden of UCCI. Funds were raised through a variety of corporate and community donors resulting in the UCCI Dr. William Hrudey Observatory, located on campus.

Bill is the Observatory Director and has incorporated a variety of technical gadgets in the Observatory, rendering it capable of both solar and night sky CCD imaging. Hundreds of school students have toured the Observatory in order to inspire them towards science.

Bill also played a role in the very successful STEM Carib Conferences provided for students of all ages, teachers, faculty and the general public.
