Current Research Projects

Most of my research projects involve observational astronomical interferometry, using the Navy Prototype Optical Interferometer (NPOI), Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI), the GSU CHARA Array, the Palomar Testbed Interferometer (PTI), the Keck Interferometer, and the IR/Optical Telescope Array (IOTA).  Specific topics include (with links to papers):

In addition to astronomical interferometry, I am working on planetary detection through ground-based transit observations.

Also available are online versions of published papers and presentations.
