The picture at right is of a summer thunderstorm over the desert during an observing run at Kitt Peak National Observatory.

I am by no means a photographer, but I will sometimes play one when I remember to bring my camera.

About Me:
I am a Ph.D student at Vanderbilt University working with Dr. Keivan Stassun. My research focuses on photometric and radial velocity manifestations of stellar magnetic activity. I additionally maintain an interest in time-series photometry of eruptive young variable stars (FUors and EXors), and I have dabbled in supernova remnants, comets and asteroids.

Want to know more about my research? See the talk I gave at the Second Kepler Science Conference here.
