I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, at the University of New Mexico. Being a radio astronomer, my favorite subjects are the Galactic Center, astrophysical masers, but also starburst galaxies and Active Galactic Nuclei. For my research I use radio interferometery observing techniques, including Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI). At UNM I also participate in work with the Long Wavelength Array (LWA).
Currently, I am supervising graduate student Bob Mesler, who is working on the environments of Gamma-ray Burst progenitors. Graduate student Bridget McEwen is working on research related to masers and the conditions in the shocked environment in a supernova remnant - molecular cloud collision.
