Infrared Astronomy and instrumentation, active galaxies, star formation,
dusty plasmas, physics & astronomy education.
We have recently completed construction of a mid-infrared (5-25µm)
imaging spectrometer for the Keck I Telescope - the UCSD/Keck Long Wavelength
(LWS). This is a facility instrument for use by UC, Caltech and NASA
Observers. We are now using the LWS to investigate the mid-infrared
characteristics of dusty AGN and infrared galaxies.
I am actively engaged in developing effective instructional methods for
teaching basic physics & astronomy at the University level. I have
recently overseen a major revision of our physics for pre-medical/biology
majors sequence, incorporating laboratory & tutorial instruction. I
am also involved in the UCSD/SDSU joint doctorate program in Science
1999 UCSD Academic Senate Distinguished Teaching Award.
Here are my recent publications.
