The most important thing we can do is inspire young minds and to advance the kind of science, math and technology education that will help youngsters take us to the next phase of space travel.

My research focuses on white dwarf stars, which are the dense end products of most stars after they run out of nuclear fuel. In particular, I am searching for new planets around white dwarfs that provide a glimpse into the future of our own Solar System. I also analyze the vibrations of stars that reveal the conditions of their deep interiors.
