Prof. Zhang received a grant from the NASA Swift Guest Investigation Program, Cycle 4, in the amount of $47,570. In his research project, Zhang will perform a Joint XRT-UVOT-optical spectral-energy-distribution (SED) analysis of Swift Gamma-ray burst (GRB) data.

The goal is to understand the physical origins of multiwavelength afterglows and to explore the extinction properties of the GRB host galaxies.
