My current research interests include (with a description in layman's terms
- The near-infrared to submillimeter spectral energy distributions of
The measurement of the amount of light emitted from galaxies in
the infrared and submillimeter parts of the electromagnetic spectrum
- Dust heating sources in nearby galaxies
- Gas-to-dust ratios in nearby galaxies
Understanding the relation of gas to dust in galaxies and what
causes it to vary.
- The relation of PAH emission to dust emission at other wavelengths
The comparison of the spatial distribution and intensity of
mid-infrared light from interstellar polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
(PAHs) to the mid-infrared and far-infrared emission from interstellar
- Distribution of star formation and dust emission within nearby galaxies
- Comparisons of extragalactic star formation activity with
morphology, AGN activity, and environment
A comparison between the rate at which stars are formed in other
galaxies to the shapes of the galaxies, the presense of supermassive
black holes in the galaxies' centers, and the locations of the
galaxies relative to each other
Additional information on my professional work is available from my pages
with my curriculum vitae, my publications list, and the list of conferences that I have attended.
