Jennifer A. Johnson

Associate Professor of Astronomy

My main research interests are the formation and evolution of the Galaxy and the Local Group and the origin of the elements.

Present research includes abundances in the atmospheres of the most metal-poor stars, abundance ratios in globular clusters, the ages of globular clusters, and the evolution of supernova and GRB rates.
