AST faculty

The Department of Astronomy at Smith is a vibrant one, with two professors, a laboratory instructor, and a postdoctoral teaching fellow. Research specialties include star formation in the Milky Way galaxy and galaxy formation in the distant, early universe. We collect data with some of the world's largest telescopes, including some in space, such as the Hubble Space Telescope and the Spitzer Space Telescope plus some on the ground, including the Keck Telescopes and the Infrared Telescope Facility at Mauna Kea Observatories in Hawaii and the telescopes of the National Optical Astronomy Observatories in Arizona.
