Sylvain Veilleux is a Professor in the Department of Astronomy and is currently serving as the Optical Director. He is primarily interested in the physics of active galactic nuclei and starburst galaxies, particularly the connection between the supermassive black hole, the starburst, and the host galaxy, and the importance of feedback on galaxy evolution and the intracluster medium. He uses instrumentation that covers the entire electromagnetic spectrum from the X-rays (e.g., Chandra and XMM-Newton), UV-optical (e.g., HST, ground-based telescopes), and infrared-radio (e.g., Spitzer, Herschel, GBT, JVLA, CARMA and ALMA). He is also the lead on a number of instrumentation projects for large ground-based optical and infrared telescopes, including recent efforts to use novel astrophotonic techniques to improve and miniaturize astronomical spectrometers.
