Richard G. Kron specializes in studies of distant galaxies and quasars using survey techniques. He focuses particularly on the evolution of stellar populations in galaxies (history of the star-formation rate), the cosmic evolution of quasars, and generally the state of things at high redshift. He is part of Fermilab's Experimental Astrophysics Group, and is also affiliated with the University's Yerkes Observatory. His current projects include the Dark Energy Survey, the Giant Magellan Telescope, and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. He is looking forward to this opportunity to share his research interests with high school students through the UChicago Immersion program, and hopes that students will come away with a desire to pursue further studies in Astronomy.
