About Me

I am an astronomer in the Physics Department at Central Washington University. 

As a postdoc at the University of Victoria/NRC Herzberg, I worked with Herschel Space Observatory data to study both high and low mass star formation regions.

I completed my PhD at the University of Heidelberg/Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg, Germany.  My research focused on high mass star formation.

Sometimes I spend summers teaching at the Summer Science Program or Yale Summer Program in Astrophysics.

In addition to my professional interests of astronomy/physics teaching and research, I enjoy road biking, bicycle touring, backpacking, traveling, amateur astronomy, rock climbing, and partner acrobatics.
