Hugh Crowl


I am a Member of the Faculty at Bennington College. My focus is in Physics and Astronomy.

My research focuses on the evolution of galaxies and the effect of environment. Specifically, I am interested in what observations of the nearby Virgo Cluster can tell us about the formation and evolution of galaxies at higher redshift. You can get more information by going to my research page.

I have taught a wide variety of classes at Bennington, including classes at all levels of Physics and Astronomy.
