Dr. Brian Morsony is an NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  He works primarily on numerical simulations of jets.  This includes modeling gamma-ray bursts and supernova from massive star collapse, and AGN jets and feedback in galaxy clusters and groups.  He also works on modeling radiation mechanisms, producing metal in galaxy clusters, accretion and star formation around the Milky Way's center, and observations of GRB host galaxies.
