Keller and Hyatt’s research was performed in collaboration with an international team that includes Ithaca College alumna Sweta Shah ’07. 

Their lecture and poster presentations summarized Keller’s recent lab work, which focused on the origin and physical nature of organic material orbiting very young stars.


Their work is the subject of a journal article published in the September 1, 2008, edition of The Astrophysical Journal.
