The University of Iowa announced Tuesday that Professor Cornelia C. Lang will serve as the University’s campus coordinator for the Iowa Space Grant Consortium. Professor Lang is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at The University of Iowa.
Professor Lang’s research is focused on radio and X-ray observations of galactic nuclear regions, specifically, the center of the Milky Way. She was a collaborator in the first Hubble Space Telescope survey of the Central 75 pc of the Galaxy and makes observations of the Galactic center using a Very Large Array radio interferometer.
Professor Lang joined the faculty at Iowa in 2002 after earning her Ph.D from UCLA and completing a postdoctoral fellowship at University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
