My research interests are primarily in observational astronomy. I work mostly on detection and characterization of exoplanets. I've worked on ground-based transit surveys such as the Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope (KELT), the Hungarian Automated Telescope Network (HATNet), and the Qatar Exoplanet Survey (QES). I have also been involved in space-based follow-up work, including Kepler, K2 and TESS.

I am interested in both photometry and spectroscopy. Most of my follow-up work uses the TRES spectrograph on the 1.5m Tillinghast Reflector Telescope and KeplerCam on the 1.2m telescope both located at the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory (FLWO) on Mt. Hopkins, AZ.
