I am an astronomical observer and
instrumentalist. I specialize in the development of ultraviolet,
optical, and near-infrared cameras and spectrographs and enabling
technologies for future instruments. I use multiwavelength observations
to address a number of research questions, with a particular interest in the energetic irradiation of exoplanets in low mass star systems and
in the physics of accretion disks and outflows in X-ray binaries.
