Travis Metcalfe is an astronomer who probes the interiors of distant, Sun-like stars to improve understanding of stellar structure and shed light on the behavior of our own Sun. He combines astronomical theory, computer science, and the few measurements available to piece together a portrait of magnetic plasma movement and other interior processes. For data, he relies on sound waves, or pulsation frequencies, that traverse the interiors of Sun-like stars and rise to the surface. Metcalfe has a cross-laboratory appointment in NCAR's High Altitude Observatory (ESSL) and Scientific Computing Division (CISL).
