Curriculum Vitae

Ph.D., The Ohio State University 2011
B.A., Boston University 2005

My main interests are in instrumentation and exoplanets. I am the lead scientist for MINERVA, the MINiature Exoplanet RV Array and author of EXOFASTv2, an Differential Evolution MCMC to characterize stellar and planetary systems. I am using it to fit all planet candidates from TESS. I also work on G-CLEF a ~10 cm/s RV instrument for the GMT.

I am a collaborator on NRES, the Network of Robotic Echelle Spectographs at LCOGT, DEMONEX, a robotic telescope that monitors the known transiting planets, and KELT, a survey for exoplanets that transit bright host stars. For more information, see my CV.

As a graduate student at OSU, I created a BJD calculator, commissioned the MDM 4K, and helped commission the Large Binocular Camera. As an undergraduate at Boston University, I helped build PRISM, an optical multi-slit spectrograph.

I also like doing astrophotography.

You can see my publications on ADS or google scholar.
