The Rotunda at Lowell Observatory

David Schleicher, Astronomer & Interim Deputy Director for Science

Dr. Schleicher’s major research interests include the physical properties, chemical composition, and behavior of comets. He uses a variety of observational tools plus theoretical modeling in his studies. In 1986, he discovered with Dr. Robert Millis the periodic variability of Comet Halley — a discovery that profoundly affected the interpretation of all observations of the comet including those from the Giotto and Vega craft.

David is an accomplished photographer.
