Chary & Elbaz (2001) template luminosities (IDL Savefile)
Code to calculate bolometric luminosities from 24 micron flux and redshift using
CE01 and DH02. Note that in Magnelli et al. 2009, DH02 have been found to be a poor representation of z<1.3 galaxies.
So I recommend editing out the DH02 part of the code.
Code to calculate bolometric luminosities
from monochromatic flux densities (including Herschel/ALMA) and redshift using
a variety of templates. See README file in the tarball for details.

Past Education/Public Outreach Programs:
Measuring the Spin of Supermassive Black Holes with SOFIA: 2017. We have recently initiated a program to undertake high
cadence optical observations of black holes with NASA's SOFIA observatory and Caltech's Palomar observatory. If interested and have skills in analysis of time-domain
astronomy data, drop me a line.
NITARP with Planck: 2012.
There is no better training for a real-world experience than for students to face a scientific
problem and to work collaboratively to solve it, while having fun at it. Thus, the goal of the NITARP
program is to have school students and teachers work on active astronomical
research areas with cutting-edge NASA research facilities.
