My name is Danny Jacobs and I run a space astronomy lab in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University. My lab is a big part of the Low Frequency Cosmology lab and collaborates on other projects around the university. We focus on observing high redshift cosmology at low radio frequencies, developing space-based astronomy and other interesting projects that take advantage of our unique skills. Our biggest projects include the Hydrogen Epoch of Reionization Array (HERA), the Precision Array for Probing the Epoch of Reionization (PAPER) in South Africa and the Murchison Wide-field Array (MWA) in Western Australia, and the SPARCS cubesat.
I was born and raised in Omaha Nebraska and obtained my Bachelor of Science from New Mexico Tech, a Masters degree in Physics from Montana State University where I worked for the Space Science & Engineering Lab helping college students build satellites before heading to University of Pennsylvania where I did my PhD work developing 21cm radio cosmology instruments, which I have continued to pursue at Arizona State University, first as a postdoc then as a Assistant Professor.
