I am a postdoctoral Fellow at Yale University, and soon to be new faculty at Louisiana State University.  My research interests involve determining the fundamental properties of stars and characterization of exoplanet host stars.  My observing experience includes long baseline optical/infrared interferometry, and optical spectroscopy.  I also work on modeling data from the Kepler space telescope for the PlanetHunters projectI am one of Connecticut Magazine's 40 under 40 for 2016.

Interested in KIC 8462852 (AKA Tabby’s Star or WTF)?  See the project webpage for news, info, and links to important resources.

** Help us study this star more through our Kickstarter campaign (ends June 17 at 9am eastern)!!
