B.S. in Physics, University of North Texas
My lifelong passion has been for astronomy and in particular observational astronomy.
While working as an engineer I was also an active amateur astronomy. Since joining
the Physics Department at the University of Dallas I have been able to pursue this
passion through exoplanet searches and observations of cataclysmic variable stars.
I have configured the software operating systems for both the Gunnison Valley Observatory in Gunnison, CO and the University of Dallas Haggerty Observatory. In working with Dr. Richard Olenick I have provided the experimental expertise and fashioned and constructed the astrographs used in our transit searches.
I have worked with UD students during summer research opportunities in Colorado, Michigan, and Texas and enjoy guiding them in their experimental work. My goal to is find new exoplanets that other astronomers will confirm.
