I have a PhD in physics from UCB, where I attended grad school. I am an astrophysicist, and work on the theory of star formation. In addition to being a lecturer in the Physics Dept, I am also a research astronomer in the Astronomy Dept, and the co-author of the first graduate textbook in my field (Stahler and Palla, The Formation of Stars, Wiley, 2004).
