Charles Bailyn

Charles Bailyn

Charles Bailyn is a Professor of Astronomy and Chair of the Department of Astronomy at Yale University. He was an undergraduate at Yale
(where he was a classmate of Adrienne Cool, the Principal Investigator of this project) and a graduate student at Harvard (once again a classmate of Adrienne's). After a post-doctoral stint at Harvard's Society of Fellows, he returned to Yale in the guise of a faculty member, albeit one who knew far more than he ought about what students were doing outside of the classroom. His research interests focus on stars in groups, from ultra-compact binary systems to large clusters like Omega Centauri. When not doing research, teaching, or sitting in tiresome committee meetings, he can occasionally be found singing Renaissance madrigals, and/or feigning injury to avoid performing too badly at a variety of athletic endeavors.
