I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics at Harvard University. My research focus is primarily on characterizing the fundamental properties of stars, and to use these observed properties as empirical tests of our current stellar structure and evolution theories. I am also an avid photographer, music player and collector, and dabble in homebrewing of delicious beer.

"Like a man traveling in foggy weather, those at some distance before him on the road he sees wrapped up in the fog, as well as those behind him, and also the people in the fields on each side, but near him all appears clear, though in truth he is as much in the fog as any of them."

-- Ben Franklin
