 I am working to help bring the best science out of the Allen
Telescope Array.  A focus of my work is on radio transients, which
spans my work here and in my previous work in the Netherlands with the
Low-Frequency Array (LOFAR).  My thesis work was on surveys of the
Galactic center, a topic that I still pursue.

yourself, your interests, your family, etc.?

 I enjoy playing soccer and brewing beer, although not at the same time.
