RESEARCH  INTERESTS

Students at ONU have done serious research projects with me primarily in the area of supermassive black hole demographics, but also in clusters of galaxies. They work with data from the Hubble Space Telescope and from ground-based observatories like Magellan and the MDM observatory.
