Research

Star formation, stellar clusters, the Milky Way galaxy, infrared astronomy, very low mass stars, brown dwarfs, cool atmospheres.

My principal research is focused on the study of resolved stellar populations and young stellar clusters in the Milky Way galaxy, stellar formation and variability. My recent research focuses on the properties of the lowest mass stars and coldest brown dwarfs. I am particularly interested in characterizing and understanding the cool atmospheres as well as searching for multiple systems and monitoring BD variability in order to understand atmospheric dynamics–essentially weather.
