Welcome

I am currently on the faculty of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and I have an adjunct position at the Arkansas Space Center. My research is focused on the structure, morphology and dynamics of galaxies and their dark matter halos and the nature of the dark matter particle. I am also heading a new initiative at UALR called Astronomy and Astroparticle Physics in Arkansas (AAPA).

Our work uses data collected at a variety of ground-based and space-based observatories:

Hubble Space Telescope
Kitt Peak National Observatory
Lick Observatory
Spitzer Space Telescope


We are involved in the following projects:

The Arkansas Galaxy Evolution Survey (AGES)
DarkSide: A Dark Matter Detector
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST)
The H-alpha Galaxy Survey (HaGS)
The SCUBA HAlf Degree Extragalactic Survey (SHADES)
