Leon Van Speybroeck Wins 2002 Rossi Prize

Dr. Leon Van Speybroeck (left) was awarded the Rossi Prize of the High Energy Astrophysics Division of the AAS. The prize is in recognition of Leon's long involvement with X-ray optics, culminating in the outstanding success of the X-ray telescope flown on the Chandra Observatory.

I am an Astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

My areas of interest are High Energy Astrophysics - mainly x-ray astronomy, observational techniques (i.e., detectors), clusters of galaxies and large scale structures. I have done some work on data and information systems. I am currently the Associate Director of the High Energy Astrophysics Division, and the Principal Investigator for the High Resolution Camera for the Chandra X-ray Observatory (formally known as the Advanced X-Ray Astrophysics Facility). I also am PI for the Astrophysics Data System (ADS) that operates an on-line abstract and literature service for astronomy.
