Prof. Brodwin joined the UMKC Department of Physics and Astronomy in 2011. His research work involves the observational discovery and study of massive, rare galaxy clusters, primarily at infrared and millimeter wavelengths. He is interested in these most-massive collapsed systems both as unique astrophysical objects, which permit the study of galaxy formation and evolution in extreme environments, and also as cosmological probes of the growth of large scale structure.
