I am currently teaching AST 351/392J, Astronomical Instrumentation.

Research Overview:

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 physics of accretion disks and outflows and the properties of exoplanet systems in the ultraviolet.
