    My research interests are varied but largely fall under the rubric of observational time-domain astronomy, including gamma-ray bursts, supernovae, and tidal disruption flares. I am also intent on developing instrumentation and software to enable novel observations of such time variable phenomena.

    Research Projects

    • Swift Gamma-Ray Burst Explorer (Deputy Project Scientist)
    • Intermediate Palomar Transient Factory
    • Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (Transients & Variable Stars Working Group)
