Research Interests:

I study supernova remnants both observationally and theoretically to detail the interaction of the expanding blast with the surrounding interstellar medium. By using radio, optical, infrared, and x-ray wavelengths, my colleagues and I can investigate all the various components of the surroundings to see how clumping and irregularities affect the expansion.

I am also participating in multiwavelength studies of the Magellanic Clouds, satellite galaxies of the Milky Way, in order to elucidate the physical properties of the many components of the interstellar medium in those galaxies.

I am part of the team building the Long Wavelength Array, an exciting new radio telescope being constructed by the University of New Mexico, the Naval Research Laboratory, the University of Texas at Austin, and the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and with assistance from NRAO and individual researchers across the US.
