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.
