David S. Davis
My current position is at Joint Center for Astrophysics, Department of Physics,
University of Maryland, Baltimore County working for the GLAST SSC at GSFC as the
GLAST archive scientist.
Dave Davis is a graduate from the University of Maryland Department
of Astronomy. His thesis work was at Goddard Space Flight Center and
was directed by Dr. Richard Mushotzky. His thesis work involved searching
an X-ray flux limited sample of galaxy clusters for X-ray substructure.
Other research areas while at GSFC were the X-ray properties of poor groups
of galaxies and he was part of the team that discovered hot X-ray gas in the
NGC 2300 group. His was also active in the determining the X-ray properties
of moderate redshift clusters. He was at the University of Alabama
in the Department of Physics and Astronomy as an EPSCoR Postdoctoral Research
Associate. Currently he is continuing his investigations of the physical
properties of poor groups of galaxies and their evolution using XMM data.
He is also involved
in a multi-wavelength study of the galaxies in the Abell 3128 with J. Rose.
Other research involves continuing to study clusters using X-ray data from
Chandra and combining this with optical data.
