- Alt Phone:
I used to be a Research Scientist at, and have a soft spot for, Barnard College and its Dept of Physics and Astronomy.
There are some very cool folks at the Department of Astronomy at Columbia University.
I work primarily on observational galaxy evolution, primarily the star formation histories of field galaxies. This includes the spectrophotometric study of starburst galaxies, post-starburst objects, and colliding, merging, and interacting galaxies. I've also dabbled in quasar-hunting, strictly avocationally.
A large project I'm active in is a Hubble Space Telescope Treasury Program called COSMOS.
