Welcome Traveler.

I am a fourth year undergraduate a High Point University majoring in computational physics. My research has focused on pulsating hot subdwarf B stars (sdBs) or more specifically finding new pulsating pulsating sdBs from archival GALEX data and then getting fedup with than and training neural networks to find pulsating sdBs for me. Aside from these sdB escapades, I have also worked on projects extracting radial velocity measurements from high resolution echelle spectra. 

As much I enjoy astrophysics, I do also enjoy taking breaks from work. In my free time I have been known to work/volunteer at Encore Stage & Studio, where I enjoy carpentry and general theater tech work. Additionally I am of the Star Trek inclinations, spending what some might say is far too much time enthralled in the exploits of the enterprise crew.


Research Work

  1. Searching for pulsating sdBs with GALEX and gPhoton - Published August 2017

  2. Using Deep Learning to classify and understand data from large sky surveys such as Evreyscope - Accepted for publication November 2017

  3. Follow up interesting K2 targets with spectroscopy looking for extreme binaries

  4. Three new long period sdBs, attempting to better constrain formation models - presented at 227 AAS

  5. EREBOS collected data on HW Vir candidate stars


Fun Stuff

  • HueCastAutoLights — A “Stage Manager” for your Hue Lights

  • mplEasyAnimate — Easy Matplotlib animations for all your animation needs (unless your animations needs are not animated matplotlib graphs, then you should probably look somewhere else)

  • ZSH_conda — utilities to better interface anaconda and the Z shell (oh-my-zsh specifically)
