Currently I carry out most of my research from space on observatories
like Hubble Space Telescope, the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic
Explorer, or Chandra
- Cataclysmic Variables
- Supernova Remnants.
- X-ray sources in nearby galaxies.

Duties at STScI
Currently, I am an instrument scientist working on the Wide Field Camera 3, which
was installed on Hubble Space
Telescope in during Servicing Mission 4.
Progress on making all of the instruments installed duing that
servicing mission can be found here.
Previously, I was the Mission Scientist for JWST at STScI, where we are
planning to operate JWST, an a fashion that is rather similar to Hubble
Space Telescope. I gave a public talk on JWST
in May 2007, which you can watch,
if you are interested.
