Profile Summary

I work on solving cutting-edge problems in astrophysics, using innovative spectroscopic designs. My research interests range from the metagalactic ionizing background to comets. I have been or am a principal and co-investigator on a number of Sounding-Rocket FUSE, HST and Spitzer programs to observe atomic and molecular emission, scattering and absorption of far and extreme ultraviolet radiation, along with the concomitant fluorescence into ultraviolet, optical and infrared bands, in a variety of galactic and extra-galactic environments.
