Sunrise on Mt. Whitney

Research Interests

Most of my current efforts are devoted to hardware and software development for several radio/infrared telescope facilities, including CARMA, SOFIA, GBT, and RLT.

My basic research interests include black hole physics, (active) galactic nuclei, gravitational lensing, numerical techniques, relativistic astrophysics, and celestial mechanics/stellar dynamics. My research is theoretically oriented and usually involves substantial numerical computation.

Abstracts of papers and downloadable preprints are available under Publications.

Current Projects:
