About Me


I am a Senior Research Scientist working for the Bay Area Environmental Research Institute. I am the Principal Investigator of a NASA co-operative agreement that provides funding the Kepler/K2 Guest Observer Office.

My primary day-to-day role is serving as Director of the Guest Observer Office for the  Kepler and K2 missions at NASA Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley California. My science interests are in characterizing exoplanets and their host stars using Kepler photometry. I particularly enjoy using novel statistical methods in my data analysis.
