Volker Bromm, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

Department of Astronomy

UT Austin

"Astronomy is one of the great adventures of the human mind, and I love to convey its excitement and beauty to students on all levels as well as to the general public. Although of apparently so little direct practical use, astronomy touches on some of the deepest questions that we can ask, which provides a powerful motivation to pursue excellence in learning and research. I feel deeply privileged to teach this wonderful subject."
