Stephen Lepp and his group apply Atomic and Molecular Physics to astrophysical problems. Professor Lepp has modeled many astrophysical enviornments including: The Early Universe, Supernova (the explosion of a massive star), Interstellar Clouds, Active Galactic Nuclei (Quasars and Seyfert Galaxies) and Star Forming Regions. The models help us to understand these regions and to probe their physical conditions.
