Goldwin Smith Professor of Astronomy
Here is a (fairly) current CV.
In Feb 2005, we began the Arecibo Legacy Fast ALFA Survey
ALFALFA, using the new multi-beam
ALFA array on the 305-meter
to search for gas-bearing galaxies over 7000 square degrees of sky.
As of August 2011, observations for ALFALFA are 90% complete,
and a catalog exists for almost half the survey area.
ALFALFA serves as the basis for numerous
graduate student thesis
projects and also engages the amazing
Undergraduate ALFALFA team.
For a more detailed summary of current research
projects and who we are, take a look at the home page of the
ExtraGalactic Group (EGG).
I got to know ALFA when it first arrived in Arecibo in April 2004.
I seem to serve on a lot of committees:
I am involved in Cornell's
Knight Writing Institute and teach
Astronomy 2201 under the Writing in the Majors Program. Additionally,
three of my terrific graduate students -- Dave Kornreich (now at Humboldt
State U, with tenure even!),
Sabrina Stierwalt, and Ann Martin -- have taught Astronomy 1109,
a freshman writing seminar, under my supervision (although I learned
a lot from watching them!).
I will be teaching a new course
Astro3303 in spring 2012.
I have also recently taught
Astronomy 6590 and
