Research & Scholarship

Notice (4/23/24): As much as I love my silly little website and always hope to be writing more, I need to suspend my hosting account for financial reasons. At the moment, I can’t justify paying server costs when that could, say, fund a flight to see my family that I see in person less than once a year!

This website will be going into hibernation sometime between May 7 and May 22 since my renewal always happens during finals time… the worst time. I’d like to be up and running again this summer with a more affordable option.


P.S. Thanks to my Kofi contributors over the years! I appreciate every little bit of love.

I seek to blend teaching and research to investigate better ways to teach the physical sciences and bring students into research projects from an early stage. I am also engaged in efforts to recruit and retain new STEM teachers, particularly in physics, an area which has a critical nationwide shortage. Other interests include radio astronomy instrumentation, citizen science, active galactic nuclei, and astronomy and physics education research. 

Students can work with me on Radio JOVE, the Pulsar Science Collaboratory, and InStar Double Star Astrometry.
