Group members

Current members of the Yale group are listed below, together with (some of) their research interests. We have weekly meetings on Fridays at 9.00 or 10.30 in the conference room; others are welcome to attend! We have close collaborations with many other researchers, at other Universities and Institutes. Examples include the other members of the Dragonfly team, who are largely based in Toronto, the COSMOS-DASH team (spread around the globe), and the groups of Charlie Conroy at the CfA and Mariska Kriek in Berkeley.
