Radio Physics: Kevin Flaherty Studies Star Formation

Jan 22, 2019

Kevin Flaherty works for the Williams Astronomy and Physics departments as the observatory manager and astronomy lab instructor. In his research career, he has focused on the structure of gas and dust surrounding young stars, and how planets form out of this material. He is also interested in making astronomy a more inclusive environment and in bringing astronomy to others through outreach in the community.

Radio Physics is a collaboration with the Aspen Center for Physics, KDNK Radio, and advanced physics students at Roaring Fork Valley High School. This interview was recorded earlier in 2018 during the teen summer program.
