Thomas S. Allen
I am a Graduate Research Assistant in the Physics and Astronomy Department at the University of Toledo. I study young stars and their dusty circumstellar material. My primary focus has been on a multi-wavelength observational survey of one star forming region in particular, called Cep OB3b. I use observations from a variety of ground and space-based observatories to determine the physical properties of these young stars and associated material to better understand the processes that shape star, and by extension, planet formation.
