His special interests include black holes, quasars, gravitational lensing, and multi-wavelength observations of galaxies. Prof. O'Dowd received his Ph.D. from the University of Melbourne, and before joining Lehman worked at NASA's Space Telescope Science Institute, with the Gemini Observatory, and most recently at Columbia University.
