Center for Astrophysics


I am an Astrophysicist in the Radio and Geoastronomy Division, and staff scientist for the Submillimeter Array. I currently serve as the Chair of the Submillimeter Array Time Allocation Committee. My research focuses on millimeter/submillimeter-wave astronomy targeting solar system objects, particularly spectroscopy of planetary atmospheres and surface characteristics of moons, asteroids, and KBOs. I also am interested in time domain astronomy, maintaining decades long monitoring of millimeter bright blazars.

Ph.D. California Institute of Technology (1996)
