Lecturer/SAO Astrophysicist
Charles J Lada


My primary research interests center around understanding the origin and early evolution of stars and planets and the cold molecular clouds which spawn them. I am an observational astronomer and use observations at millimeter-wave, infrared and optical wavelengths to investigate the natural physical processes which give rise to stars and planets in our galaxy.
