Dr. Stan Kurtz received his undergraduate degree in physics from Spring Arbor College and his doctorate in physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has been a researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico since 1995.

He studies the interstellar medium and star formation using radio astronomy techniques. In particular, he is known for his work on compact HII regions, which are associated with the sites of massive star formation. He also uses observations of masers, which are the microwave analog of lasers, to study the environment around newly forming stars.

Dr. Kurtz is head of the Laboratory for Radio Astronomy Instrumentation (LIRA) in the Institute of Radioastronomy and Astrophysics (IRyA).
