Astronomy research at Fresno State is carried out by Dr. Ringwald. It is mainly aboutcataclysmic variable binary stars (CVs) and related objects, such as novae and black holes, their evolution, and the physics of their accretion disks and outflows. For an easy primer on "What is a nova?," see here. For a more detailed primer on CVs, see here.
