Assistant Professor of Astronomy (December 2000 - present): California Institute of Technology, Pasadena CA . I teach introductory and advanced undergraduate courses and am fortunate to be able to work with many talented Caltech postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduate students. My main research focus is observations of star and planet formation.
