University of Delaware Magnetism in Massive Star

Magnetism in Massive Star Research Group

Our research group is focused on the study of magnetism in stars. We are experts in their measurements and characterization (with spectropolarimetric telescope observations). We are especially interested in the origin of these magnetic fields for massive stars that will eventually turn into neutron stars and black holes. We still do not understand how these magnetic fields are generated, and how they will impact the star's susequent evolution and demise.
