Welcome to my homepage. I served as Professor of Astronomy at UT from 1974 until my retirement in 2013. I remain active in research. My main research interests are Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) and H II regions. My work is a combination of theory and spectroscopic studies, including use of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. In recent years I have concentrated on quasars and their black holes, binary quasars, and chemical abundances in galaxies.
