Duties at STScI
As a member of the Science Software Branch
I am responsible for writing and maintaining programs used to reduce,
calibrate and analyze data from HST instruments. Since mid-2000 I have worked
on the design, development, and now maintenance of the
WFC3 pipeline calibration programs.
During the previous five years I developed and maintained the
calibration programs, calnica and calnicb. And before
that, I spent a couple of years maintaining and enhancing the
calibration program, calfos. I've also been involved in user-support
and enhancements for the STSDAS Synthetic Photometry software package,
- Married Patricia Vos on 31 July 1982, and have 3 children - Matthew
(age 25), Elizabeth (age 22), and Michelle (age 17).
- I love music and movies, and have always enjoyed playing around with the
technology that allows me to experience them at home. I've also had an
avid interest in theatrical lighting since my days as a lighting technician
at the Calvin College Fine Arts Center. For 20 years I did lighting for the
and the Tonedeafs concerts at Calvin, and now I continue to do it for
National Christian Choir concerts (in which my wife sings) and for the
WCA drama productions.
- Former President and member of the Board of Directors of
Washington Christian Academy,
where my children have gone to school.
