I am an astrophysicist interested in developing new methods for detecting new planetary systems orbiting other stars.  I am involved in several projects that seek to expand the types of stars around which planets can be found, and that develop new methods that can measure properties of detected planets that could not previously be determined.  In the course of these investigations, I also make precision measurements for the study of basic stellar astrophysics, multiple stars, and related science.

Non-work stuff:

"If ever an equation has come into its own it is Einsteins's e=mc². Everyone can rattle it off now, from the highest to the lowest; from the rarefied intellectual height of the science-fiction reader, through nuclear physicists, college students, newspaper reporters, housewives, busboys, all the way down to congressmen."
--I. Asimov
