Our research group

We are part of the Department of Physics & Astronomy at Western University. We study the contents and properties nearby galaxies, trying to figure out the relationships between the stars, gas, dust, and star clusters they contain, and how they make new stars. Using observations from telescopes on Earth and in space, we map out star-forming regions, carbonaceous molecules, and X-ray-emitting binary stars.

Postdoctoral position available

Our research group in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at Western University in London, Canada has a postdoctoral position available, to work on stellar populations and star formation in nearby galaxies. The successful applicant will use multiwavelength observations and innovative computational and statistical techniques to put together the big picture of galaxy formation. She or he will carry out independent as well as directed research and be eligible to apply for telescope time with CFHT, Gemini, ALMA, and JCMT.

What we do

Our research group in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at Western University studies nearby galaxies: the stars, gas, dust, and star clusters they contain, how they make new stars, and the relationship between these. We use observations from telescopes on Earth and in space to map out star-forming regions, carbonaceous molecules, and X-ray-emitting binary stars, among others.
