My primary research interest lies in astronomical instrumentation, specifically related to three-dimensional spectroscopy (e.g. Fabry-Perot interferometers and integral field units).
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Astronomy on the Astrophysics track from the University of Colorado - Boulder in May 2007. While I was a student I worked with Dr. Jason Glenn, Dr. James Aguierre, and then-graduate student Lieko Earle on Z-Spec, a sub-millimeter grating spectrometer. After graduating I worked for Dr. John Bally on CU's Near-Infrared Camera and Fabry-Perot Spectrograph (NIC-FPS), primarily working on integrating the H1RG detector and the ICOS Fabry-Perot etalon. I began my graduate studies at the University of Wisconsin - Madison in the fall of 2008.
