Two projects 1. Analysis of unusually strong X-ray emission from a pair of young, very massive stars. 2. Modeling and analysis of high energy density plasma physics experiments that attempt to reproduce an X-ray nebula in the laboratory.
Simulated Chandra spectrum (above); Chandra imaging (left) shows that the star Kleinmann’s Anonymous Star - is a binary system. See students page on my website for the observing proposal, which describes this project.
