I'm a principal research scientist with the Laboratory for Nuclear Science, LNS, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Within LNS, I work as part of the Hadronic Physics Group, HPG, to study the structure of nucleons and few-nucleon systems.

Recently, my primary research activities have been with the OLYMPUS experiment based in Hamburg, Germany. The OLYMPUS experiment measured the contribution of two photon exchange in elastic lepton-proton scattering which has been an interesting topic recently.

In parallel, I am also involved in developing GEM detectors. Primarily this has been for the Forward GEM Tracker upgrade of the STAR experiment which is based at Brookhaven National Laboratory. However, I have been also studying GEM readout schemes and designing a GEM detector for OLYMPUS.

The links on the left provide more details on my current activities and give a summary of my personal research interests and possible future projects. Also there are links to previous research projects giving a brief overview of the experiments, some of the significant results, and outlining my role in each. Finally there are a few other links to round out these web pages.

I hope these pages are useful or at least interesting for you.
