Welcome! My name is Ben Donovan and I am a second-year graduate student at Penn State in the Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics. I work with Professor Randall McEntaffer on X-ray instrumentation, specifically developing X-ray grating technologies for the next generation of X-ray observatories.

Feel free to have a look around, and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
