I'm a research associate at the Carnegie Observatories and primarily work on the Carnegie Supernova Project. My research interests involve cosmology, the distance scale, inter-stellar dust, and applying numerical techniques for scientific inference. I also spend part of my time providing support for the Observatories by helping staff with their computers, maintaining the website, and providing backup support for the computer system in general. I am also in charge to coordinating public outreach events with local schools and organizations. If you are intrested in having an astronomer visit your school or community group, send me an email. You can also visit my personal homepage for more details about my research and interests.
