George CHartas


I am currently a Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the College of Charleston and director of the CofC Observatory.

My research interests include the study of accretion onto black holes, outflows from these mind bending objects, AGN feedback, imaging the environments of supermassive black holes, quasar evolution, gravitational lensing, constraining cosmological parameters, and high energy astrophysics. For more details have a look at my research page.

Many of my publications can be found at PUBS based on a query of the SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System.

Details of courses that I teach at CofC are provided at  my teaching website.
