I am an astrophysics professor at the University of Oklahoma. I study the early phases of the star formation process, examining many facets of young stellar objects.

The Images at the top illustrate the different views of a protostellar system gained by looking at protostar with different telescopes. The images are as follows: Spitzer in the near/mid-infrared (left), the high-resolution view from the Gemini telescope (left center), the high-resolution submillimeter view from the Submillimeter Array (middle right), and the gas velocities measured with the 13CO molecular line from the CARMA Array (right).
