Brian Fields


I’m a professor of Astronomy and of Physics at the University of Illinois

I study the big bang, exploding stars, and high energy particles from space.

I also have the privilege of teaching excellent undergraduate and graduate students. 

My worldline passes through Williams College, and the University of Chicago.   I also had the good fortune to spend time at (well, near) Notre Dame and at Notre Dame, and at Zimmy’s alma mater.
