Research Interests

Gamma-Ray Astrononomy, Solar Flares, Cosmic Gamma-Ray Bursts, Signal Processing, and Wavelets

Active Projects

I am a member of the UNH group of the Compton Telescope (COMPTEL) aboard the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory(CGRO) satellite. I currently work on the analysis of cosmic gamma-ray bursts (GRB) observed by the Burst and Transient Experiment (BATSE) aboard the CGRO as well as the study of neutrons and particle acceleration in solar gamma-ray flares observed by COMPTEL.

Conference Presentations & Proceedings

The following is a list recent conferences where I have contributed (or plan to) formal presentations (talks or posters). In some cases, postscript versions of the proceedings papers can be obtained. Select the paper title to read the abstract.
