My main field of research involves X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy and related techniques as applied to environmental science and materials physics. I am the author of several programs for EXAFS analysis as well as a few other tidbits. I am a member of the Synchrotron Methods Group of the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Ceramics Division and I am stationed at Brookhaven National Laboratory's National Synchrotron Light Source. I am a graduate of the Physics program at the University of Washington.
