I'm currently working on the Large Aperture Experiment to Detect the Dark Ages, or LEDA. We've built a 256-antenna array along with a powerful GPU-based correlator in Owen's Valley, California. We're looking for highly-redshifted Hydrogen in the early Universe, and will image the entire sky at radio wavelengths.
I work mainly on digital instrumentation: designing and implementing signal processing systems for radio telescopes. I work a lot with FPGAs and I'm an active part of the CASPER collaboration. I've helped build instruments at the Parkes (HIPSR), Owen's Valley (LEDA), Medicina (BEST-2), and Tidbinbilla (TAMS) observatories.
HIPSR is a spectrometer and pulsar machine for the Parkes 21cm multibeam receiver.
LEDA is a low-frequency array of 256 antennas in Owen's Valley, California.
D-PAD was a 16-element aperture array that I built as part of my PhD project.
Even more? I play guitar, love music and drink too much coffee. I've slowly been exploring the USA, ticking off the states as I go. I enjoy tinkering with web and UI design (thank you bootstrap), speak a little Japanese, and am outrageously good at Mariokart 64.
