    Dr. Porter received his PhD in Physics from Brown University in 1993 on a prototype superfluid helium, solar neutrino telescope. He has since worked on a number of x-ray spectroscopy instruments first as a post-doctoral fellow at the Naval Research Laboratory, then joining the X-ray Astrophysics Laboratory at NASA/GSFC in 1995. He has flown eight sounding rockets and three orbiting observatories based on cryogenic x-ray spectrometers and is a Co-I of the Athena/X-IFU instrument. His astrophysical interests center around superbubbles, the local interstellar medium, and simulating x-ray emitting plasmas in the laboratory.

    Brief Bio

    Dr. Porter received his PhD in Physics from Brown University in 1993 on a prototype superfluid helium, solar neutrino telescope. He has since worked on a number of x-ray spectroscopy instruments first as a post-doctoral fellow at the Naval Research Laboratory, then joining the X-ray Astrophysics Laboratory at NASA/GSFC in 1995. He has flown eight sounding rockets and three orbiting observatories based on cryogenic x-ray spectrometers and is a Co-I of the Athena/X-IFU instrument. His astrophysical interests center around superbubbles, the local interstellar medium, and simulating x-ray emitting plasmas in the laboratory.
