Biographical Sketch:

I am a physicist with a background in extreme ultraviolet (EUV) observation of the Sun. My PhD work at Stanford University was with Art Walker's MSSTA rocket payload, an array of 19 EUV/FUV telescopes. I came to Montana State University in 1996 as a postdoc on the TRACE satellite program. I became an Assistant Professor in 2001.


  • Solar corona, transition region and chromosphere
  • Coronal heating and X-ray bright points
  • Force free magnetic fields
  • Ultraviolet optics
  • Space instrumentation

Current projects

  • MOSES rocket payload
  • Field line ("fluxon") modeling of force free magnetic fields

Here is a brief narrative of my research interests
