One of the great features of working in the OSU Astronomy Department is that we get lots of terrific students, and we train them in an environment that encourages them to become wide-ranging and productive researchers.
The students who have been my primary thesis advisees are:
J. Michael Owen, 1997
Studying Cosmological Structure Formation with Numerical Hydrodynamic Simulations
Michael began his dissertation research with Jens Villumsen and finished it with me. After graduating, he moved to a staff position at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and he is still there.
Vijay Narayanan, 1999
Reconstruction Analysis of Galaxy Redshift Surveys
Vijay moved from OSU to a postdoctoral position at Princeton University. He now works in industry on applications of data mining and artificial intelligence.
Andreas Berlind, 2001
Biased Galaxy Formation and Large Scale Structure
Andreas held postdoctoral positions at Chicago and NYU and is now a faculty member at Vanderbilt University.
Zheng Zheng, 2004
Constraining Galaxy Bias and Cosmology Using Galaxy Clustering Data
Zheng was a Hubble Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study and a YCAA Fellow at Yale University, and he is now on the faculty at the University of Utah.
Jeremy Tinker, 2005
Constraining Cosmology with the Halo Occupation Distribution
Jeremy held postdoctoctoral positions at Chicago and Berkeley and is now a research scientist at NYU.
Juna Kollmeier, 2006
The Intergalactic Medium: Absorption, Emission, Disruption
Juna moved from OSU to a Carnegie-Princeton/Hubble Fellowship at Carnegie Observatories and is now on the permanent staff at Carnegie.
James Pizagno, 2007
The Tully-Fisher Relation, Its Residuals, and a Comparison to Theoretical Predictions for a Broadly Selected Sample of Galaxies
Jim moved to postdoctoral positions at SUNY Stonybrook, U.Va., and University of Washington, and Leiden, and he is now working in industry in the Netherlands.
Jaiyul Yoo, 2007
From Galaxy Clustering to Dark Matter Clustering
Jaiyul held the Menzel Postdoctoral Fellowship at Harvard and is currently an SNF Ambizione researcher and Zurich-Berkeley cosmology fellow at the University of Zurich and Berkeley.
Guangfei Jiang, 2008
Dark and Luminous Matter in Galaxies and Large Scale Structure
Guangfei (who also earned a Masters degree in statistics at OSU) moved from OSU to a statistical analysis position in the insurance industry.
Molly Peeples, 2010
From Galaxies to the Intergalactic Medium
Molly is in the inaugural class of postdoctoral fellows at the Southern California Center for Galaxy Evolution; her base of operations is UCLA.
Vimal Simha, 2011
Dark Matter Substructures and Galaxy Assembly
Vimal is a postdoc at Durham University.
Chris Orban, 2011
Powerlaws, Bumps and Wiggles: Self-similar Models in the Era of Precision Cosmology
Chris is a postdoc in the laser fusion group at Ohio State and a lecturer for the Department of Astronomy.
Jonathan Bird, 2012
The Formation and Evolution of Disk Galaxies
Jon is a VIDA Fellow at Vanderbilt University.
My current PhD thesis advisees are Ying Zu and Brett Andrews.
I have also been fortunate to work with a number of excellent postdocs at Ohio State, some of them supported by my grants, one by a Hubble Fellowship, and others supported by other faculty or by OSU's Center for Cosmology and Astro-Particle Physics. The postdocs I have collaborated with and mentored at Ohio State are, in chronological order:
now on the faculty at Carnegie Mellon University.
now on the faculty at U.C. Irvine.
now on the faculty at University of Chicago.
now a research group leader at Beijing Astronomical Observatory.
now on the faculty at University of Michigan.
now a Marie Curie Fellow at Paris Observatory.
now a Panofsky Fellow at SLAC/KIPAC.
now a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Portsmouth.
now a BCCP Fellow at Berkeley.
Current OSU postdocs I am working with are:
Stelios Kazantzidis (CCAPP Fellow),
Eric Huff (CCAPP Fellow),
Ralph Schoenrich (Hubble Fellow).
