Welcome to my home page. I am a former astronomer, former rocket scientist (okay, really computer programmer for NASA/Goddard), and current data scientist/software developer in NYC. I work for Conformal Systems and contribute to Bitrig, one of the BSD operating systems. I also like to brew beer.
My Ph.D. dissertation from the Astronomy department at the University of Maryland, College Park was on the numerical simulations of the interaction between AGN jets and the galaxy clusters that they reside in. A copy of my dissertation can be found here.
