Professor James Cordes
My focus is on time-domain radio astronomy, which covers everything from misbehaving pulsars to SETI. I've developed digital spectrometers and signal processing techniques to search for time-variable signals in radio surveys such as the Pulsar ALFA survey currently operating at the Arecibo Observatory. In my free time I like to cycle, hike, cook and play with my cat. I also played double bass in the Cornell Symphony Orchestra for seven semesters.
