I am an Astronomer at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, part of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

My main scientific interests are the evolution of dense cloud cores, and the formation and evolution of protostars and circumstellar disks.

Part of my science program is associated with the Submillimeter Array, the Spitzer Space Telescope, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory
