I am a Senior Astrophysicist at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and a Lecturer in the Department of Astronomy at Harvard University, jointly located at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. I am also the Group Leader for the Science Mission Planning Team for the Chandra X-ray Observatory.

My research interests center on studies of supernova remnants, neutron stars, and X-ray studies of our galaxy. Our research group actively includes a team of students and postdocs in a broad range of research areas. If you are a student interested in research in these areas, please contact me directly. http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/sao/index.htmlhttp://www.cfa.harvard.edu/sao/index.htmlhttp://www.cfa.harvard.edu/ast/http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/ast/http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/http://chandra.harvard.edu/shapeimage_2_link_0shapeimage_2_link_1shapeimage_2_link_2shapeimage_2_link_3shapeimage_2_link_4shapeimage_2_link_5shapeimage_2_link_6
