Jeff Kuhn

Jeff Kuhn is a Professor and Astronomer in the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy. Kuhn received his undergraduate degrees in Physics and Mathematics from a small college in Michigan (Kalamazoo College). He received his PhD in Physics from Princeton University in 1981. Since then he has worked on a variety of problems, ranging from understanding why the Sun varies, to understanding what makes small satellite galaxies of the Milky Way so tenuous. He has worked as an astronomer with the National Optical Observatories in New Mexico and as a Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Michigan State University. He is presently an Astronomer with the IfA. Jeff is presently developing a new type of telescope for Solar observing on Haleakala, with hopes of extending these ideas to much larger telescopes for observing a part of the universe that is currently invisible to all other instruments.
