Daniel Proga is a Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). His main interests are mass accretion processes onto compact objects and related mass outflows. He uses primarily numerical methods for astrophysical fluid dynamics to study effects of radiation and magnetic fields on gas under the influence of gravity. He also works on photoionization and radiative transfer processes.
