My research interests are fairly broad, so I'll start by outlining a few
of the projects past/present/future that receive most of my attention (along with
some relevant papers):
I am the primary (and often sole) person running ongoing NOAO survey program 11A-0038
(PI: Stubbs), which is a program using Gemini/GMOS-South to acquire extensive optical
spectroscopy of a large sample of South Pole Telescope galaxy clusters. Observations
have been underway since 2011 (to conclude in 2015), and the reduced data products are
being released as they
become available and are reduced/analyzed. The public data release is handled through
the Harvard Dataverse Network (and thank
you to the Wolback Library staff for their help and support serving the data!). A
journal article describing the program, the reduction data and the methods to generate
the data products is in preparation (Bayliss et al., in prep).
1) I wrote a science highlight summary for the NOAO newsletter (Vol 104). And then another one (front page at NOAO -- woohoo!) on the SPT-GMOS spectroscopic survey of galaxy clusters identified by the South Pole Telescope.
