@AstroCanada for the week of October 28 - Roberto Abraham

Dr. Roberto Abraham is a Professor in the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics and the University of Toronto. 

He specializes in observational cosmology, mainly focused on galaxy evolution. However, he also enjoys learning about other areas of astrophysics, so at any given time he is probably working on a bunch of other things too. For example, at the moment he is  working with his PhD students to build an instrument to find the first galaxies, and is trying to develop a technique to find protostellar disks in galaxies halfway back to the Big Bang, and is also  exploring the best observational strategies to exploit adaptive optics.
