ERA CHAIR HOLDER
The ERA Chair holder - Prof. Jeffrey Kuhn
Prof. Jeff Kuhn
has positions at the
University of Hawaii
The proposed ERA Chair has had a long-time connection with IAC, dating back almost 4 decades to an early IAC Winter school. He is committed to blending his 40 years of experience and his collaborative network of scientists, engineers and students to create a unique research group at the IAC whose skills are not reproduced anywhere else. His success as the founding director of the University of Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy Advanced Technology Research Center on Maui and as the driving force to build the unique off-axis Advanced Technology Solar Telescope (now the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope ) on Haleakala Maui, will be considered a “warmup” for this upcoming work with IAC and the European Widening Programme .
