The nearest normal spiral galaxy like our own: 
M31, also known as The Andromeda Galaxy

Welcome to Ed Colbert's Home Page!

I am an astrophysicist who works on accreting black holes in normal and active galaxies, galactic winds, Seyfert and starburst galaxies, and X-ray supernovae. I am currently an Associate Research Scientist in the Physics and Astronomy Department at the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) in Baltimore, MD. I am also an Associate Research Professor in the Physics Department at the Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington, DC. I am currently supervising the PhD thesis of CUA graduate student Ciprian Berghea.

Have a look at a PDF version of my Curriculum Vitae (last updated April 23, 2006), or my PhD thesis.
