Research Interests

Space Science / Particle Astrophysics

Greg Stacy holds a joint faculty appointment between the Department of Physics at Southern University and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Louisiana State University. At LSU he is a member of the Space Science/Particle Astrophysics research group. His primary research experience is in the area of astronomy and astrophysics, in particular high-energy astrophysics. He is a member of the instrument team for the Imaging Compton Telescope (COMPTEL), one of four gamma-ray detectors in orbit aboard NASA's Compton Gamma Ray Observatory. Dr. Stacy's main research program at present involves the multiwavelength study of active galaxies, using data acquired with space satellites and ground-based observatories. He is also actively involved, with colleagues at LSU and elsewhere, in an experimental effort to develop a new type of x-ray/gamma-ray detector. This new instrument (MARGIE) will be flown by high-altitude scientific balloon to study the properties of high-energy cosmic sources. Dr. Stacy's research programs are funded primarily through grants awarded by NASA, NSF, and the Louisiana Board of Regents.
