Eric Omelian

Senior Research Associate
Silver Spring, MD
Eric's main interest is in the morphology of AGB stars to planetary nebulae, especially those systems that produce bi-polar nebulae. Eric currently utilizes the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) as a research platform to study dusty symbiotic systems and spends way too much time running radiative transfer models (RADMC-3D) to support this research. Eric has previously supported science satellites at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and he recently supported the SOFIA Program's pipeline science data reduction group at NASA Ames Research Center in California. When research isn't taking up all of Eric's time, he enjoys playing the violin and everything that the Washington, DC metro area has to offer.
