Professor Jason Glenn's research group focuses on astronomy and instrumentation at far-infrared through millimeter wavelengths. Current astronomy projects include characterizing warm molecular gas in galaxies detected with the Herschel Space Observatory, detailed investigations of molecular gas morphology, dynamics, and excitation in galactic nuclei with Atacama Large Millimeter Array observations, and measuring the structure and properties cold interstellar gas in our own Milky Way.  Instrumentation projects include developing new superconducting millimeter-wave spectrometer technology, SuperSpec, for redshift measurements of distant galaxies and development of high-sensitivity, far-infrared kinetic inductance detectors for suborbital astronomy and space observatories.  Prof. Glenn's group values quality teaching and service work, and diversity, inclusiveness, and work climate in addition to research quality.
