Dr. Jeffrey Hall has served as Lowell’s Director since June 2010. He joined the staff at Lowell in 1992 as a postdoctoral research fellow. He works with Dr. Wes Lockwood, Brian Skiff, and Len Bright on Lowell’s Solar-Stellar Spectrograph (SSS) project , a long-term program involving monitoring of solar and stellar activity cycles, with the goal of lending an astronomical perspective to solar influences on terrestrial climate.
Dr. Hall is presently a member of the American Astronomical Society’s standing committee on light pollution, space debris, and radio interference, and has played an active role in dark-sky preservation efforts around Arizona.
