Rodolfo Montez, Jr.

Finally: A Case‐Study of a Long Non‐Traditional Pathway to an Astrophysics PhD

June 30, 2015

Rodolfo's research focuses on high‐energy emission (Xrays and ultraviolet) from evolved stars with new directions that probe multiwavelength approaches to study the late stages of stellar evolution. As co‐leader of the Chandra Planetary Nebulae Survey, Rodolfo plays an active role in the direction of programs that push our understanding of the physical processes responsible for the shaping and evolution of planetary nebulae.
