Christopher Rooney

Christopher Rooney is a fourth-year grad student at Cornell and was editor-in-chief of Curious from 2018-2020 (meaning that anything wrong on the website could very likely be his fault). Christopher studies galaxies far, far away trying to find the galaxy where Star Wars took place trying to characterize star-formation at a time in the history of the Universe when stars were being formed extremely quickly. He also works on the detectors used to measure the light from these galaxies.
