    Research Assistant

    National Radio Astronomy Observatory

    PAPER (Precision Array for Probing the Epoch of Reionization) is undergoing testing at the NRAO (National Radio Astronomy Observatory) in Green Bank, WV. I work with Rich Bradley of the NRAO in Charlottesville, VA, to develop this array and test new imaging techniques for wide-field images at low frequencies.

    Also, as part of an NRAO Key Project to precisely measure the Hubble constant, I worked with Jim Braatz of the NRAO in Charlottesville, VA, to search all nearby, early-type galaxies for strong water disk masers with the GBT (Green Bank Telescope).
