My name is Danny Jacobs, I am co-director of the Low Frequency Cosmology lab where we observe high redshift cosmology at low radio frequencies, develop 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 (now completed) Precision Array for Probing the Epoch of Reionization (PAPER) in South Africa and the Murchison Wide-field Array (MWA) in Western Australia, the SPARCS cubesat, and the DORA cubesat. I am also Associate Director of the ASU Interplanetary Initiative where I serve as Director of the II Lab which supports cubesats and other small space missions.
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. I am currently an Assistant Professor at Arizona State University.
