Brief Curriculum Vitae for Professor Paul Callanan

Department of Physics, University College, Cork, Ireland

(paulc@ucc.ie)

Employment History 

  • PhD awarded in 1987 from NUI Galway and the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies
  • Research Associate in the Department of Astrophysics at the University of Oxford from 1987-1991.
  • Hubble Fellowship, which I took to Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (Mass) where I remained as a Fellow and Research Associate from 1991-1996.
  • Appointed as a College Lecturer in UCC in 1996, and currently a professor (grade 2) in the Department of Physics there.

Research

  • Multiwavelength studies of Interacting Binaries - X-ray Binaries, Cataclysmic Variables and Pulsars, both in our Galaxy and others,
  • Served on review committees for both NASA and ESA (including orbiting observatories such as Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer, XMM-Newton, and Chandra and other ESA review committees), and ground based facilities.
  • Reviewer for all main astronomical journals.  As principal and co-investigator,  awarded time on telescopes in Chile and the US (Arizona and Hawaii),  and on X-ray satellite observatories, in international, peer-reviewed competition 

Other Duties

Served as chair of the Astronomy and Space Sciences Committee of the Royal Irish Academy.  Played central role in the restoration of the Crawford Observatory (1880) in UCC.

Research Interests

The goal of my work is to combine X-ray, optical and IR observations from ground based and orbiting observatories to study the processes occurring in neutron stars and black holes as they interact with their companions in binary star systems. I work with a long list of collaborators include workers at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge (MA), the Department of Astronomy in Berkeley, San Francisco State University, Notre Dame, the Open University, etc.

Specifically we seek to address such issues as:

•             Can we reliably measure the masses of black holes and neutron stars ?

•             Are there any other black hole signatures aside from their mass ?

•             How do neutron star/black hole accretion disks evolve ?

•             What are the main mechanisms by  which they radiate?

•             How many black holes exist in our Galaxy ?

 

My long term goals are

 

(i)                 To refine our current estimates of black hole and neutron star mass estimates. The strategy is driven by the need to (a) identify the most reliable means for measuring such masses and (b) using these to compare with binary star evolution models, SN theory, and employing the mass estimates for accurate black hole spin estimates. For neutron stars, these measurements allow us to better constrain the equation of state of the degenerate material in their interiors.

(ii)                Develop models for the dynamical evolution of accretion disks around these compact stars. Our recent observations show these disks to eccentric and precessing, and they may also be warped out of the orbital plane. However, there has yet to be a details reconciliation between e.g. SPH codes for such disks and observation.

(iii)             In the longer term, I would also wish to expand the work of the group into hardware development collaboration with other research groups (e.g. in Tyndall).

 Description

I have been a member of the Working Group that developed the policy document for the European Academies Science Advisory Council entitled "European Space Exploration: strategic considerations of human versus robotic exploration". See http://www.easac.eu/home/reports-and-statements/detail-view/article/european-spa.html for more details.

I have been a member of several Chandra (NASA)  and XMM-Newton (ESA)  Time Allocation Committees during the period 2008-2014, assessing X-ray astronomy proposals.

I am part of the national effort to develop a radio telescope in Birr (Co Offaly) - the ILOFAR consortium.
See http://www.lofar.ie for more details. This has been supported by a SEFS SRF grant.
