Message from the Department Chair

Welcome to Astronomy!

I invite you to explore the many areas of interest and opportunity that can be found here within the pages of the Astronomy website.

Spend some time learning about Campbell Hall and the rich history of its namesake, W.W. Campbell. Take a tour through the profiles of our award winning faculty, outstanding students, researchers, and post docs and learn about the fascinating research that goes on in the department -- from studying the relationship between planets and moons in our solar system, to galaxies and blackholes, to creating a road map for exploring the structure of the Universe. And before you go - check the calendar for upcoming events and don't forget to sign up to receive our annual newsletter.

Thank you for visiting - as you can see, we are an exciting and diverse department doing amazing and cutting edge research!

Imke de Pater, Chair
