Research Interests

  • The interplay between massive stars and star formation in the surrounding environment.  This interest extends both to detailed studies of the physics and dynamics of the gas and dust around regions of high mass star formation, as well as to the study of global effects (e.g. self propagating star formation) in other galaxies.  The intent is to use the microphysics we have learned about in nearby star formation regions to tell us more about how larger systems propagate star formation and ultimately affect global modes. 
  • Space Mission Development with faculty at ASU and elsewhere.  This development extends to SFO/SFC, the Star Formation Observatory/Camera, a NASA-selected mission concept study, of which I am PI; Orion, a MIDEX-class optical/UV observatory proposal for which I am PI; and HORUS, an Origins Probe concept study conducted in 2004-2005.
  • Instrumentation Development for both ground-based and space-based applications.  Managerial support of the Laboratory for Astronomical Space Instrumentation at ASU.  Current project involves development of detectors for Orion and SFO/SFC, and a detector unit for suborbital flight.
