Quasars, Carbon Stars, Bass Guitars...

WELCOME! I'm an Astrophysicist at the
Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA).

My CV (PDF format)



SCIENCE EDUCATION , including my 2002 book on Peer Instruction For Astronomy (a teacher's guide for introductory undergraduate astronomy). See some popular science articles too.

Sensing the Dynamic Universe , website is designed to showcase the amazing variety of astronomical variables, from pulsating stars to supernovae to quasars, using sonification of light curves and spectra to make "time domain astrophysics" accessible to the blind and visually impaired.

The Chandra X-ray Observatory where I work in the Director's Office. And a video where I philosophize about the Universe, Chandra and my job!

HOBBIES especially playing bass with The Wicked Pickers . Before that, J.P. Tropicale with Cornell Coley.

The image backgound is from Hubble, showing a distant cluster of (mostly red) galaxies acting as a gravitational lens, producing the optical illusion of 4 (blue) images of the same background quasar.
