      Matthew Ashby is an Astrophysicist at the Harvard- Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. He became a member of the SWAS mission team in 1995, and has also been a member of the IRAC instrument team since 1999. His research interests involve working to better understand the sources of infrared emission from galaxies, and modelling the radiative transfer processes taking place in Galactic star formation complexes. This work is based on data now being taken by the Spitzer Space Telescope and other observatories, both ground- and space-based.

      Dr. Ashby is leading an effort to characterize star formation in the local universe (the Star Formation Reference Survey). He is also involved in a number of Spitzer/IRAC Guaranteed Time and Guest Observer science projects with a special focus on infrared observations of galaxies in the nearby and distant Universe.
