I am an experimental astronomer interested in ground and space based astronomical instrumentation.
My research has largely focused on the development of instruments for spectroscopic observations
in the ultraviolet from high altitude balloons and small satellites. I am also interested in
studies of diffuse background radiation in ultraviolet and transmission spectroscopy of exoplanets.
At the Space Research Institute, I am involved in the CUTE mission for which I develop the data
simulator and the data reduction pipeline.
