I'm a support scientist at Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, MD. STScI is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA), and has performed the science operations of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) since its launch in 1990. We also perform the same functions for the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), scheduled for launch in 2018.
My job is split between functional duties for the institute and my own personal research. On the functional side, I work in the Science Mission Office as part of the Science Policies Group. In practical terms, we are the office that coordinates the interface between Hubble and JWST and the astronomical community at large. We administer the proposal review process, assemble peer review panels and Users' Committees, and develop the policies governing the use of the telescopes. If you're a professional astronomer and want to serve on an HST or JWST peer review panel, feel free to contact me. You can learn more about my research below.
