Jesse Rivera is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Astronomy at Swarthmore College. He currently is co-teaching the first-ever Radio Astronomy course offered at Swarthmore College. Professor Rivera’s primary research interest lies in understanding how galaxies form and evolve. To better understand these processes, he is studying a sample of gravitationally-lensed, dusty star-forming galaxies (DSFGs) detected with the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT) in Chile.
