About Me

I arrived at UW in the summer of 2007 after spending some years on the faculty of the University of Pittsburgh and before that at the Johns Hopkins University. This must mean that I am not afraid of cloud as both Pittsburgh and Seattle share the same number of clear days per year (not many). I work principally on large astronomical surveys such as the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and the Large Synoptic Sky Survey. I currently run the UW data management group for LSST which works on developing software analyzing the data that will come out of the LSST and I also run the LSST image simulation group which is developing high fidelity simulations of what we expect to see with LSST. My science focuses on analyzing large astronomical data sets to study the formation and evolution of galaxies and cosmology using techniques such as photometric redshifts.
