Jonathan C. Tan

I am a Research Professor in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Virginia, where I spend approximately 30% of my time. My primary appointment is as a Professor in the Dept. of Space, Earth and Environment at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.


My research is focussed on the origin of planets, stars, galaxies and black holes, and involves both theoretical and observational programs. I have helped established the Chalmers and Virginia Initiatives on Cosmic Origins.
