A Mid Infrared Search for Variable Stars in the Milky Way Galaxy



Hello, my name is Brian Brooks and I am a rising senior at Old Dominion University. I will graduate in the spring of 2014 with a Bachelor's degree in Physics and a minor in Applied Mathematics. After completion of my degree, I want to continue pursuing my education in Astronomy by going to graduate school. My areas of interest are infrared and optical Astronomy. I love learning something new daily and being amongst family and friends.
