Krisciunas, Kevin individual record
Instructional Assistant Professor

I am working on two principal areas of observational astronomy that are related. I am a member of the ESSENCE Project, a supernova search carried out on the CTIO 4-m telescope. I am also working on the reduction of light curves of more nearby supernovae observed at the Cerro Tololo Observatory and the Las Campanas Observatory.
