Research Staff and Their Interests

Below are listed the names and research interests of the current members of the ING astronomy group, of ING observing support assistants (telescope operators) and of research visitors. The names of former members of the astronomy group can be found on the former research staff, students and visitors web page.

A list of papers by ING astronomers, sorted in descending order of publication date, is provided by ADS.

For phone numbers, see the the ING staff list. The instrument responsibilities of individual members of the group are given on the instrumentation overview.
