Stefan Immler's research interests include cosmic explosions such as supernovae and gamma-ray bursts. In particular, he is interested in the environments of massive stars that can be probed by studying the interaction of the outgoing shock from the stellar explosion with ambient material. He is also working on the X-ray and ultraviolet properties of nearby galaxies.

He is currently leading the NASA Swift satellite Guest Observer Program and is a member of the Swift Science Center at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. He has been teaching astronomy and cosmology at the University of Maryland as a lecturer and at the George Washington University as a professorial lecturer.

Before joining the University of Maryland and the NASA/GSFC he held postdoc positions at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and the Pennsylvania State University in State College after earning his PhD from the University of Munich and the Max-Planck-Iinstitute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Germany in 2000.
