The FIRST Survey
VLA FIRST Survey
is the radio equivalent of the Palomar
mapping 9,900 square degrees of
the sky to a flux density limit of 1 mJy at 20 cm wavelength with
resolution and 1"
MAGPIS: The Multi-Array Galactic Plane Imaging Survey
The MAGPIS web site
collects images and catalogs of the Milky
Way from the radio to the infrared. Currently our prime
database is our new high-dynamic range,
high-sensitivity VLA survey of the inner Galaxy.
Hubble Advanced Camera for Surveys
I am on the science instrument team for the
Advanced Camera for Surveys
, which was installed
on the Hubble telescope during a 2002 Space Shuttle servicing mission.
I designed the algorithm used for on-board compression of the
ACS images (described in a Postscript
from the 1998 Kona SPIE meeting.) I'm working on strongly
lensing clusters and direct imaging searches for planets, among other
is a new command language
for IRAF based on the Python scripting language. It is useful both for
interactive data analysis and for writing analysis scripts.
I developed image deconvolution methods used for
Hubble Space Telescope and other data. I co-edited the
of the 1st and 2nd HST image restoration workshops.
Guide Star Catalog-II
I developed the
a project to construct an all-sky catalog of one billion
stars and galaxies with colors and proper motions from
digitized Schmidt photographic plates. I have also worked on
other applications of decision tree classifiers to astronomical
