I’m an astronomer living on the Big Island of Hawaii. My research involves studying how young stars interact with their parent molecular cloud. My recent work has focused on instrumentation: both small robotic telescopes and also research instruments for 8-10 meter class telescopes.
I’m an alumnus of The University of California at Berkeley where I majored in physics and astrophysics. I went on to earn my PhD in Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
