Thomas Connor is an Astrophysicist in the Chandra Director's Office in the Chandra X-ray Center. His research primarily focuses on the growth and origin of the earliest supermassive black holes, and, in particular, on X-ray observations of these objects. His other projects, ranging from lensed AGN to the galaxy populations of clusters and the X-ray Cosmic Web, are extensions of that work, based on understanding how the most massive systems evolve over cosmic time.
