I received my PhD from Stanford University in 2001 where I was involved in research and development of measurement devices with extreme sensitivity for application to gravitational wave detection. I continued this work at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan through 2004.

As an assistant professor at San Jose State University I am collaborating with LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory and am starting a research program that give student the opportunity to be involve in big science in the new and exciting field of gravitational wave astronomy.
