J. Xavier Prochaska’s home Page


These web pages briefly describe my professional and family activities.  I may possibly update them from time to time...

Professional:  I am Professor of Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of California, Santa Cruz and also Astronomer at the University of California Observatories. 

Familial:  I am married to one lovely wife (Gabrielle) and we have 3 growing boys (pictured above several years ago).
