I am a professional astronomer with a B.S. in astronomy from Caltech and an astronomy Ph.D. from the University of Arizona. I have worked as a visiting professor at Swarthmore College, and as a postdoctoral researcher studying brown dwarfs, asteroids, and extrasolar planetary systems at Stony Brook University. I am now searching for near-Earth asteroids with the ATLAS project at the Institute for Astronomy (IfA) of the University of Hawaii

Besides writing the Epic of Karolan , I have also composed a number of short stories and poems. I try to explore profound human questions with my writing, and create compelling and widely-varied scenes and setting. These short stories are very different from Karolan : I'm not interested in writing the same thing twice!
