Dr. Brandon Marshall


Dr. Marshall’s primary research expertise is in the field of observational infrared astronomy as applied to the study of high-mass stars and star formation. He is especially interested in aspects of high-mass star formation and exploring the role that accretion disks play in the evolution of young stars. He received his Ph.D. in Astrophysics from Iowa State University studying the environments impacted by high-mass stars and their formation before joining the faculty at UNK in 2019.
