Cannon maintains an active and cutting-edge research program. His thesis work was in
extragalactic observational astronomy, with an emphasis on the panchromatic properties of
starbursts in Dwarf Galaxies. His publication record since 2002 includes 43 publications
in the area of Dwarf Galaxies.
After completing his doctorate, he did postdoctoral work at the Max Plank Institute for
Astronomy in Heidelberg, Germany, and at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT.
EDUCATION: B.S., University of Iowa Ph.D., University of Minnesota
Cannon has been teaching at Macalester since 2007.
