Astrophysical Research Interests

I am interested in the physics of quasars, the most luminous objects in the universe.  I use observations of gravitationally lensed quasars from the U.S. Naval Observatory, Flagstaff AZ, the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory to study the structure of the central engines of these powerful sources.

  • Quasar accretion physics 
  • Gravitational lensing
  • Observational Computational astrophysics
