I primarily do observational work on:
- the formation and subsequent evolution of planets, stars, and galaxies
- stellar magnetic activity
- improving research methods through astrostatistics and astroinformatics
I am also attracted to unexplored areas, such as the ultraviolet sky recently opened up by the GALEX satellite or the time domain regime being explored by the Palomar Transient Factory.
More details on specific research projects are linked to at left.
I am currently working with Lynne Hillenbrand and with the PTF/iPTF collaboration on a large survey of variability in pre-main-sequence stars. First results from the full data set are coming soon!
My publications are listed on ADS and the arXiv.
My research software is available from GitHub and the ASCL.
