My Research:

PhD Program in Astronomy at the Ohio State University

At the Department of Astronomy of The Ohio State University we offer a unique PhD program with a very strong emphasis on research. Our graduating students have typically authored or co-authored 7-12 refereed journal articles by the time they complete the program, in addition to numerous conference papers and abstracts. Our 1st- and 2nd-year students are already active researchers, publishing papers, attending conferences, giving talks, going on observing runs, and working in the instrument lab.
