Kevin Krisciunas is working on two principal areas of observational astronomy that are related. He is a member of the ESSENCE Project, a supernova search carried out on the CTIO 4-m telescope. He is also working on the reduction of light curves of more nearby supernovae observed at the Cerro Tololo Observatory and the Las Campanas Observatory.
