I am an astronomer at UC Berkeley.  I work with the California Planet Survey (CPS) team to search for planets orbiting other stars and study their properties. 


I received a Ph.D. in physics from Harvard University working with Paul Horowitz on optical SETI.  My undergraduate degree in physics is from MIT.
