Visit by James Rhoads

James Rhoads is visiting DARK from 30 May - 20 June 2011. James is here to collaborate with several DARKers.

James is currently an astrophysicist, and a professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University. His main research areas are galaxy formation, galaxy evolution, the reionization of intergalactic hydrogen by early galaxies. He also studies the nature of gamma-ray bursters through the physics and phenomenology of their long wavelength afterglow emission. His studies of distant galaxies include surveys to identify Lyman-alpha emitting galaxies through narrowband imaging, and to study their physical nature, using ground-based telescopes in Arizona and Chile, along with the Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra X-ray Observatory.
