Science Interests
My primary research topic at this time is the study of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and their host galaxies. I also study other compact objects, in particular radio pulsars. I am interested in observations of distant galaxies, and I work on methods for improving the imaging of these and other objects with HST.
