I’m an observational astronomer focusing on the evolution of stellar rotation. I approach this problem from three different angles:
I’m currently an Assistant Professor of Physics at Lafayette College.

I use open clusters to calibrate the evolution of stellar rotation. Open clusters are collections of stars that all share the same age.
Models for stellar angular momentum evolution assume that stars are born and evolve in…
Stellar rotation is tied to magnetism in two ways. First, stars are made up of charged particles, which generate a magnetic field if they move…
