Matthew Millard, Ph.D.
Matthew's research involves studying the 3D structure of the hot, X-ray emitting ejecta in supernova remnants (SNRs) using high-resolution transmission grating spectroscopy from the Chandra X-ray Observatory. Matthew also analyzes the far-infrared ejecta and dust emission from SNRs using data from the Infrared Space Observatory and the Herschel Space Observatory. Matthew has recently begun studying SNRs at gamma-ray wavelengths using data from the Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System (VERITAS) to investigate their production of very high-energy cosmic rays.
