Office: 120B (Folsom Stadium)
My research focuses on extragalactic astronomy and cosmology; observations of active galaxies and galaxy clusters using radio interferometers, optical telescopes, and x-ray satellites; supercomputer numerical simulations of astrophysical jets and large scale structures in the universe; and, design of next-generation observatories in space and on the Moon. I direct the Lunar University Network for Astrophysics (LUNAR), a multi-university center of excellence funded by the NASA Lunar Science Institute.
