Anthony (Tony) F. J. Moffat is an emeritus professor of astronomy at the Université de Montréal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Dr. Moffat was appointed as a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 2001. Dr. Moffat’s interests focus on massive stars (Wolf-Rayet stars in particular), stellar winds, binary stars, as well as the structure and dynamics of galaxies.
Prof. Moffat completed his Master of Science at the University of Toronto in 1966. His doctorate was granted in 1970 from Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum (Dr. rer. nat.). Following postdoctoral studies at Ruhr-Univ. Bochum from 1970 to 1976, and the awarding of his second Dr. Habil. in 1976, Moffat was hired to the faculty of Université de Montréal in 1976.
