Science Software Engineer
I'm a science software engineer at Space Telescope Science Institute working with the JWST NIRSpec instrument team. In the past I helped commission the Gemini High-resolution Optical SpecTrograph (GHOST) at Gemini-S and develop its data reduction pipeline. I have also worked extensively with the SDSS-IV/APOGEE survey, both in helping plan and run the survey as its Target/Field Selection Coordinator and produce survey data as a member of the APOGEE Stellar Parameter and Chemical Abundance Pipeline (ASPCAP) team. My research background is in exploring the chemistry of metal-poor systems to help us understand how they have formed and evolved over time.
