research overview

  • Dr. Danforth's research involves the interaction between intergalactic gas and galaxies. He uses space-based ultraviolet spectra of background active galaxies to probe diffuse 'invisible' gas clouds along with ground-based optical images and spectroscopy of nearby galaxies. Other interests include the behavior of super-massive black holes in active galaxies and the dynamics of galaxies and galaxy groups.
