Website: Space Physics: X-ray astronomy

Research Interests: I work in X-ray astronomy with focus towards making superconducting transition-edge sensor detectors. We are primarily a sounding rocket group and we are interested in looking at the galactic center for X-ray emission from diffuse hot gas to answer questions about metal transport, baryon content and galactic evolution.

When not at work, I like going on bike rides on the scenic trails around town, playing videogames and spending time with my dog.
