Research Interests

I am a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Notre Dame working on the design, development and construction of the iLocater instrument. iLocater is a next generation instrument under development for the Large Binocular Telescope, Arizona, USA. Once installed, it will search for Earth like planets around other stars in the sky. You can find out more about this work on my research page.
