Research Interests

Professor Crone Odekon is an astrophysicist who studies the formation of galaxies and large-scale structure of the universe. She has approached the problem from multiple perspectives, including computer simulations, Hubble Space Telescope observations and, most recently, radio telescope data from Arecibo.
