I am the Senior Science Advisor in the Director's Office at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard and Smithsonian. Prior to working in the Director's Office, I served as the Associate Director for the Solar, Stellar, and Planetary Sciences Division. My research focuses on solar and stellar coronae and shocks from accretion on young stars. I am a member of the AtomDB team, producing high energy spectral models for collisionally ionized plasmas. I am a Co-Investigator on Arcus, a Medium Class Explorer proposal for high resolution X-ray spectroscopy.
