The Milky Way Halo Research Group at STScI

Our research group studies the gaseous halo of the Milky Way to better understand the Galactic ecosystem. We focus on multi-wavelength spectroscopy at UV, optical, IR, and radio wavelengths to measure the flows of baryons between the Galactic disk and halo. These flows play a key role in regulating the rate of star formation and provide a close-up case study of the baryon cycle around a star-forming galaxy. We are part of the Low Density Universe community at STScI. We welcome new collaborators at all career stages. Several of our projects are described below.

We are hiring a new postdoc to start in fall 2023. Application details are available here.
