Jon Morse

Jon Morse is Associate Director of the Center for Astrophysics and Space Astronomy at the University of Colorado. He arrived in Boulder in 1995 after spending 3 years as a postdoctoral fellow at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore. He is a Harvard graduate, and earned his Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina in 1992. His research interests include studies of star formation, high-mass stars, supernovae and supernova remnants, and active galaxies. He is also the Project Scientist for the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph instrument that will be installed by astronauts during the next Hubble Servicing Mission. Despite working for almost 9 years now with Hubble data, he continues to marvel at the astonishing details revealed in each new image, even within objects such as Cas A that have been studied for decades.
