Profiles in "Astrophysics" Expertise Area

  • Jansen's research focuses on ground- and space-based ultraviolet–mid-infrared broad- and narrow-band surface photometry and spectroscopy of relatively nearby galaxies.
  • Davies is a theoretical physicist, cosmologist, astrobiologist, cancer researcher and best-selling science author. He has published about 30 books, hundreds of research papers and review articles across many scientific fields
  • Windhorst's research is in astronomy, cosmology, galaxy formation and evolution, the cosmic dark ages and the epoch of First Light, and astronomical instrumentation.
  • Timmes is an astrophysicist in interested in stars, chemical evolution, astrobiology, gamma-ray astronomy and community-driven software instruments.
  • Christopher Groppi is an experimental astrophysicist interested in the process of star and planet formation and the interstellar medium.
  • Scowen's interests include star formation, astronomical space mission development, imaging, detectors and mirror coatings.
  • With Master's degrees in Physics and Electrical Engineering, worked in Semiconductor Circuit Design for many years before a late career switch to Astrophysics.
  • Bose investigates stardust and organics in extraterrestrial materials to understand their cosmochemical origins. She measures water and other volatiles in asteroidal regolith to probe their evolution in the solar system.
  • Starrfield is a computational astrophysicist and an ASU Regents Professor of astrophysics who studies stellar explosions using a Lagrangian, hydrodynamic, fully implicit, stellar evolution computer code.
  • Desch is a professor of astrophysics in the School of Earth and Space Exploration. His research is in star and planet formation, meteoritics, exoplanets, and astrobiology.
