I currently work as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Warwick, in central England, where I will continue observing pulsations and binary effects in white dwarf stars. For more information about my research interests, click here.
In August of 2013 I completed my PhD at the University of Texas at Austin, where I was fortunate to discover many new exciting objects and physical phenomena with the more than 220 nights I spent at the McDonald Observatory. Check out my McDonald Observatory profile for more about me. I was also recently interviewed by KRTS, the NPR affiliate for far west Texas based in Marfa, if you have 30 minutes to kill; the interview can be streamed online.
I have also worked as a journalist, serving as editor-in-chief of The Daily Texan from June 2006 to May 2007 and for a year as a reporter for The Chronicle of Higher Education in Washington, D.C. I maintain a Web site of primary documents I have collected over the years at www.fretna.org.
