Exoplanets have been my main research interest in recent years, initially with a focus on the detection of candidate planets, both with radial-velocity surveys and with space missions such as Kepler and TESS.  Now my focus is on the confirmation and characterization of transiting planets using facilities at the Whipple Observatory, such as the Tillinghast Reflector Echelle Spectrograph and KeplerCam, and determining planetary masses using the HARPS-N spectrograph at the 3.6-m TNG on La Palma.
