In spring 2014 I am teaching Astro 1: Introductory Astronomy
and Astro 61: Current Problems in Astronomy and Astrophysics.
In fall 2014 I will be teaching Astro 16: Modern Astrophysics
and a new seminar, Astro 129: Cosmology. Information
about astronomy and physics course offerings is available on the
department website or in greater detail in the course catalog.

My primary research interests (see links below) involve the interaction of matter with intense radiation fields, both in cosmic and laboratory settings. Areas I work in include radiation-driven stellar winds — material pushed off the surfaces of stars by starlight — stellar x-ray emission, and x-ray heated plasmas, including fusion plasmas. I study all of these using spectroscopy and numerical modeling.
