Scott Engle, Villanova UniversityThe Various Variations of Cepheids: What Can We Learn?
Dr. Scott Engle, Villanova University

Since the discovery of the period-luminosity relationship of Cepheid variables, they have been crucial to understanding the universe. They have been used as “standard candles” to determine the distances to galaxies and star clusters, but Cepheids have a host of other important properties!

Scott Engle is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences at Villanova University.
