I am a 6th year graduate student at Boston University. My research projects focus on using near-infrared polarization to study the magnetic field in the dusty, star-forming interstellar medium of nearby, edge-on galaxies, and determining the relationship between wavelength and the polarization percentage of light scattered by interstellar dust.

Of course I also thoroughly enjoy "The Art of Computer Programming." I have several years of experience with IDL (mostly used by Astronomers and Earth Sciences) and MATLAB. I am currently building my Python repertoire using Python 3, and I have toyed with HTML and Javascript to help build my Astronomy Research website.

I prefer to work in Linux, but for stability/compatibility reasons, I run Windows and my computer, so I end up asking a lot of questions about using Cygwin properly.
