I am an astronomer at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. I operate the MEarth transit survey, a project searching for Earth- and Super-Earth size exoplanets orbiting mid-to-late M-dwarfs. My primary research interests are measurement of fundamental parameters of M-dwarfs using eclipsing binaries and stellar rotational evolution.
