I’m an Astronomer at NRC Herzberg Astronomy & Astrophysics, located at the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory, and an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Victoria. I received my PhD in physics from MIT in 1997.

My research interests include the structure and stellar content of galaxies, especially ellipticals, globular cluster populations, distance measurement, large-scale structure, and cosmology.
