Eric Koch is a Submillimeter Array (SMA) Postdoctoral Fellow. His research focusses on linking the interstellar medium and star formation from the scales where individual stars form to whole galaxies. To do this, his work combines novel analysis techniques with observations from radio and sub-millimeter interferometers to trace the atomic and molecular gas in nearby galaxies. He also develops and maintains tools for the radio astronomy community (spectral-cube; FilFinder; TurbuStat).
