Knox S. Long is an astronomer at STScI. He conducts observational research on supernova remnants in this and nearby galaxies, studies the properties of X-ray sources in nearby galaxies using both space-spaced (Hubble, Chandra) and ground-based (Gemini) instruments. He is also one of the authors of a Monte Carlo radiative transfer code used to model the winds of accretion disk systems, such as cataclysmic variables and AGN.
