Richard Ignace

Biography

Born in Fort Wayne, IN, I have been married since 1988. My wife and I have six wonderful children. We have lived in Indiana (of course), Wisconsin, Scotland, and Iowa, and we currently reside in Tennessee.

I am a professor of astrophysics, teaching students and doing research. Stars have been the main focus of my studies, but I am interested in most areas of astrophysics, including microlensing and exoplanets.

Thank you for checking out my book!
