Research – Black Holes, Massive Star Formation and Aperture Synthesis
Aperture Synthesis images of Black Holes and high mass prostars. Bh have accretion disks and drive powerl outflows or jets.
Recent research: Observations of the Black hole in M87, and the high mass prostar in Orion KL.
Observations in the 1980’s with students at Berkeley and Caltech using the Hat Creek and OVRO millimeter arrays.
Over the years we helped to develop the technology leading to ALMA and Event Horizon Telescopes.
