New Job!

Professor Jacobs demonstrates a fork plane.

Starting this August I will be an Assistant Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration here at ASU! In my new role I will continue to do research in the LoCo Low frequency Cosmology group but also help the department continue to expand its cubesat and smallsat activities. In the near term this means acting as an advisor to current projects like Phoenix, a student cubesat project. In the longer term, cubesat sized technologies are enabling astronomical observations which until recently were not possible. The field of low frequency cosmology might ultimately be limited by the ionosphere and other planet-induced stability issues and require a space-based observatory. In the shorter term there are other interesting astronomy projects possible today, like for example dedicated observations of stars in the UV.

There will be upcoming opportunities for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs in areas like radio instrumentation, digital signal processing, cosmology analysis, smallsats and much more.
