Dr. Lair does research in observational astrophysics, specifically optical observations of Type Ia supernovae. Type Ia supernovae are a certain type of stellar explosion that is the death of a relatively small mass star. Type Ia supernovae are special because the explosions are all roughly the same, meaning they have the same brightness and duration. Dr. Lair is particularly interested in the lateā€time light curve (brightness versus time) of this type of stellar explosion.
