Teaching and Scholarly Interests

Dr. Gordon's teaching interests include introductory astronomy and physics, and stellar astrophysics. Her research focuses on learning about fundamental parameters of massive stars, such as size and temperature, with an observational technique called interferometry. Dr. Gordon uses the CHARA Array interferometer located at Mt. Wilson Observatory, California to directly observe the sizes of massive stars.
