Much of my research focuses on the building infrastructure for the collection, processing, and analysis of time-series photometry from large astronomical surveys. Other research interests include the characterization and classification of variable star populations in the Galaxy, low-mass stars, and eclipsing binaries. I've worked on variations of these themes using data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey in the past, the HATNet and HATSouth surveys currently, and the HATPI survey in the near-future.
These are listed in reverse chronological order, with on-going projects at the top.
- Building a photometric pipeline and transient-detection engine for HATPI
- Variable stars in HATNet and HATSouth and overlaps with Kepler and K2
- HATS-19b to -21b: three transiting Hot-Saturns discovered by the HATSouth survey
- Testing low-mass stellar models with M-dwarf eclipsing binaries from SDSS Stripe 82
