Robert Wheeler Willson Professor of Applied Astronomy
Research Associate of the Smithsonian Institution
Alyssa A Goodman

Goodman's work focuses in three areas: studies of star formation, e-Science, and data visualization. 
The star formation research is aimed at understanding how interstellar gas arranges itself into new stars, and the associated investigations use a variety of observational techniques covering the spectral range from X- ray to radio. In her e-Science work, Goodman leads the "Seamless Astronomy" efforts at the CfA, which focus on making modern software tools more useful in astronomical, and other scientific, research. Goodman's Viz-E-Lab, located at 160 Concord Avenue, hosts a variety of computing and display hardware and software used in both data visualization and "Seamless Astronomy" research.
