Chris Reynolds is a Professor in the Department of Astronomy. He has broad research interests within the realm of high-energy astrophysics, including the X-ray/gamma-ray properties of black hole systems, accretion disk and jet physics, the physics of the hot intracluster/intergalactic medium in galaxy clusters, and computational fluid dynamics.
