About Me

Senior Scientist at the JCMT

I study the birth of stars in an effort to understand where our own Sun and planets originally came from. In December, 2017, I graduated with my PhD from the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada. I now work at the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (East Asian Observatory) in Hilo, Hawaii, USA. My main job is to manage and optimize the scientific productivity of the telescope by innovating observing strategies and data processing techniques focusing on a variety of fields in submillimetre astronomy. I also direct my own research program while assisting both international and visiting astronomers in obtaining high-quality observational data. In addition, I provide general support for the JCMT's operations as well as the performance of the instruments and their development.
