I am an astronomer with an interest in applying advanced computer and
information techniques to scientific problems. Currently I'm the
Deputy Division Head of the
Information Technology Services Division
Space Telescope Science Institute.
IT Services leads the development and support of the STScI's
Other activities of note:
For more about my professional interests,
look at my Projects and Papers
- The Spike
planning and scheduling system. This is a general framework
for planning and scheduling which is used by more
astronomical observatories than any other system.
Spike is used by HST, FUSE, ESO VLT, Subaru, Chandra, and others.
- The Project to Re-Engineer Space Telescope Observing (PRESTO).
This process improvement project has been recognized by
NASA and the astronomical community for increasing the
efficiency of HST observing while simultaneously increasing
the participation and satisfaction of astronomers
- I was one of the chief architects and implementers of
HST's proposing and observing tools such as
RPSS and RPS2 which have set the
standard for modern astronomical observations.
I also collaborated in a joint STScI-GSFC project
which developed the next generation of observing tools, the
Scientist's Expert Assistant, which led to the deployment of
the Astronomer's Proposal Tools used by HST.
- I led the Vision
2000 Planning and Scheduling Product Development Team.
Vision 2000 was a NASA/contractor initiative which streamlined
and modernized HST mission and science operations.
- Program Organizing Committee
of the Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems (ADASS) Conference
from ADASS VII - ADASS XVII.
