The main goal of Andrew Harris' research is understanding the energetics and physical conditions within galaxies and their nuclei. Part of this effort involves developing instrumentation for radio observations over wide bandwidths and wide fields of view at the Green Bank Observatory and other sites. Part of his effort involves spectroscopy of individual high-redshift galaxies and of the integrated molecular emission from clusters of galaxies. Closer to home he uses data from the Herschel Space Telescope and the SOFIA airborne observatory to probe our Galactic center, both to understand the physical conditions in this complex region and to extrapolate to observations of more distant galaxies.
