2017: SIRXS-Deep

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2017, will examine the SEIP catalog to find the most unusual and faintest infrared excess objects serendipitously detected by the Spitzer Space Telescope.

2017: CephC-LABS (Looking At Baby Stars)

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2017, is continuing a study of the star-forming region Ceph C, exending into the longest wavelength data available.


2016: HIPS AGN (Hidden In Plain Sight Active Galactic Nuclei)

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2016, is looking for AGN in some surveys for young stars.

2016: LLAMMa (Luisa, Laura, Alexandra, Milton)

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2016, is using infrared (Spitzer and WISE), optical (SDSS), and X-ray (Chandra) data to look for young stars in the Ceph C star-forming core.

2015: LADDT (Luminosity, Accretion Disk, and Dust Team)

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2015, is combining UV, optical, and near infrared data for active galactic nuclei to look for a relation between the color of their accretion disks, the emission from their dust and their luminosity.

2015: IC 417

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2015, is using WISE, 2MASS, and IPHAS data to look for young stars in the IC 417 region.


2014: SIRXS (SEIP IR Excess Survey)

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2014, is looking for IR excess stars in the SEIP (Spitzer Enhanced Imaging Products) source list.

2014: HG-WELS (Hungry Giants: WISE Excesses and Lithium Study)

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2014, is using WISE to look for IR excesses around giants that may or may not be eating planets.


2013: C-CWEL (Continuing Cool WISE ExpLoration of BRC 38)

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2013, is continuing explorations of the BRC 38 cloud that the C-WAYS team began in 2012. Much of the background information found below for the IC 2118, Lynds, CG4, and C-WAYS (of course) teams also applies to this team as well.


2013: SHIPs (Searching Herschel Images for Protostars)

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2013, is looking for protostars in Herschel data.

2013: They Might Be Giants

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2013, is looking at very blue things in the Kepler field.

2013: CM4Seyferts

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2013, is working with WISE and GALEX data to seek correlations between the infrared and ultraviolet in Seyfert galaxies. They will be looking for a diagram akin to the Hertzsprung-Russel (HR) diagram for stars.

2012: C-WAYS (Cool, Wise, And Young Stars)

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2012, is working with Lynds 1548 and WISE data to find new young stars. Much of the background information found below for the IC 2118, Lynds, and CG4 teams also applies to this team as well.

2012: HR4AGN

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2012, is working with WISE and GALEX data to seek correlations between the infrared and ultraviolet in active galactic nuclei (AGN). They will be looking for a diagram akin to the Hertzsprung-Russel (HR) diagram for stars.

2012: Cold Spotz

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2012, is working with Planck data to identify the nature of some of the mysterious far-infrared sources found in the public data release.

2012: UBOKO (Ultra-Blue Objects for Kepler Observing)

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2012, is working with Kepler and some ground-based data to identify particularly blue objects and try to identify their nature by using data from other surveys.
