I currently work at the Harvard-Smithsonian
Center for Astrophysics, High Energy
as a Mission Planner on the Science Operations Team for the
Chandra X-ray Observatory.
My research involves theoretical, computational, and
high-energy observational studies of clusters of galaxies and
galaxy groups, in particular merging systems.
Recent work includes running numerical simulations and
comparing the results with observations of the "bullet
cluster" to learn something about the physical properties of
For more information on the "bullet cluster", including pretty pictures, press
releases, publications, and even public data releases, check
