Research Interests

My career has been what can only be described as "non-traditional," so I have two major areas of research that I am currently working on:

I have a tremendous amount of data that is ready to be analyzed, and am working with students to develop better techniques for time series analyses and in applying astrophysical tools and techniques to non-astrophysical problems.
