I am a graduate student at the University of Arizona as a University Fellow and NSF Graduate Fellow. I work on the MagAO-X extreme adaptive optics instrument, capable of directly imaging planets around other stars. My research has intrest lie in novel adpative optics techniques, from predictive control, ground based control, and now high performace calibrations.

Research Work

Extreme AO with MagAO-X

Using incoherent sparkles to callibrate pyramid WFS.

Ground Layer AO on 'imaka

Comparing performance across four wavelengths to show GLAO performance into the blue.

Wind profiling with telemetry

Using GLAO look telemetry to predict wind direction, speed, and height.

Predictive control on Keck II

Working with Epirically orthogonal Functions to implement predicive AO control on Keck.

Compact AO for Radial Velocity Telescopes

Working with JPL and the Caltech KPIC team to create an optical design to center fiber fed RV designs.

Debugging Failure

Working with the Embodied design research laboratory.
