"life is nothing more than the pursuit of stories worth telling to your children."
-john hobbs

Welcome! Originally from Florham Park, New Jersey, and a graduate of Hanover Park High School (1996), Harvard College (2000), and the University of Hawaii (2007), I was an STFC postdoctoral fellow at Queen's University Belfast from 2007 to 2010, and am now back at Hawaii as a Hubble Fellow. I am interested in comets that look like asteroids and asteroids that look like comets and finding out what they can tell us about the origin and evolution of the solar system as we see it today. I am also interested in the orbital dynamics of small solar system bodies, and am heavily involved in solar system research being conducted as part of the Pan-STARRS1 survey project.
