Winter 2017 Astronomy FSP -- Haut Bay, South Africa
I enjoy mentoring graduate and undergraduate students. I am currently have two PhD students in my group: Thomas Boudreaux, and Martin Ying and two undegraduates, Catherine Slaughter and Owen Eskandari. If you are interesting in working with me, please get in touch. I always have projects available for undergraduates and graduate students. My graduate students often travel to meetings, to go observing or to meet with colloborators. I am looking for undergraduates to join my group who are interesting in going observing at MDM observatory on Kitt Peak in Arizona. Previous PhD students who were members are my group include Nathanial Paust (Whiteman College), Aaron Dotter (Harvard - CfA), Andrea Kunder (Saint Martin's University), Gregory Feiden (University of North Georgia), Erin O'Malley (Pratt and Whitney), Meridith Joyce (Australian National University) and Christina Gilligan (MITRE).
I have a number of colloborators around the world, including Giuseppe Bono (University of Rome - Tor Vegata), Massimo Marengo (Iowa State) and Frederic Thevenin (Observatoire de la Cote d'Azur).
I was born and grew up in Winnipeg, Canada. I obtained my BSc from the University of Manitoba, a MSc from Queen's Univesity (Kingston, Canada) and my Phd from Yale. I had a post-doctoral fellowship at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics and a Hubble Fellowship at the University of Arizona before coming to Dartmouth. I am a member of the American Astronomical Society and the International Astronomical Union and a member of the board executive committee of the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT).
