I am an Assistant Astronomer in the North American ALMA Science Center at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Charlottesville, Virginia. My research focuses on star formation and the interstellar medium in galaxies: I use radio, millimeter, and infrared observations (along with whatever else I can get my hands on) to try and understand how galaxies form clouds of dense gas and dust, how these clouds form stars, and then what happens to the gas when the stars turn on and blow up.

The idea behind this site is to give a brief description of my research, PPTs of a few recent talks, an overview of my IDL and Python code, and a short blurb about me. Empirically, this site has and will lag. If you want to get ahold of me the best way is email (just aleroy at nrao  edu).

If you are here looking for a giant CO data set, look no further. Our HERACLES survey is public here.
