- A little bit about me -

I received a B.S. in astronomy from the University of Arizona, a M.S. in physics from the University of Texas at El Paso, and a Ph.D. in atronomy from the University of Arizona. I am the Principal Astronomer for the Four College Consortium which consisted until recently of the College, the Citadel, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and Villanova University. The University of Nevada, Las Vegas has now left the consortium operates a 30" Automatic Photometric Telescope at the Fairborn Observatorysite at Washington Camp, Arizona. I am a member of the Kepler Asteroseimological Consortium and am active in Working Groups 3 (Beta Cephei Stars) and 6 (Slowly Pulsating B Stars)
