I am an astrophysicist and a project engineer working for the Submillimeter Array, since 1994, and the Greenland Telescope, since 2012. My research interests include molecular astrophysics, evolved stars, interstellar medium, star-formation and astrophysical masers, radio interferometry, high-speed analog to digital conversion, antenna pointing and metrology. I am an instructor for the Harvard undergraduate laboratory astrophysics course, Astronomy 191. I am involved in the development of various educational projects for 21 cm wavelength radio astronomy. I am a member of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration and participating in the development of the Next Generation EHT.
