The Fisk-Vanderbilt Masters-to-Ph.D. Bridge Program is a model for substantially increasing the number of underrepresented minority students earning doctoral degrees in the physical sciences. The program presently leads the nation in master's degrees in physics for African-Americans, and is one of the top ten producers of physics master's degrees among all(More)
Research Interests Enhancing exoplanet discovery and characterization through precision stellar astrophysics. Photometric and radial velocity manifestations of stellar magnetic activity. Time-series photometry of eruptive young variable stars (FUors, EXors).

The Great Nebula in Carina provides an exceptional view into the violent massive star formation and feedback that typifies giant H ii regions and starburst galaxies. We have mapped the Carina star-forming complex in X-rays , using archival Chandra data and a mosaic of 20 new 60 ks pointings using the Chandra X-ray Observatory ' s Advanced CCD Imaging(More)
Filtergraph is a web application being developed by the Vanderbilt Initiative in Data-intensive Astrophysics (VIDA) to flexibly handle a large variety of astronomy datasets. While current datasets at Vanderbilt are being used to search for eclipsing binaries and extrasolar planets, this system can be easily reconfigured for a wide variety of data sources.(More)

We report the results from spectroscopic observations of 113 ultra-wide, low-mass binary systems, composed largely of M0–M3 dwarfs, from the SLoWPoKES catalog of common proper motion pairs identified in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Radial velocities of each binary member were used to confirm that they are co-moving and, consequently, to further validate(More)
We present the Sloan Low-mass Wide Pairs of Kinematically Equivalent Stars (SLoWPoKES), a catalog of 1342 very-wide (projected separation 500 AU), low-mass (at least one mid-K – mid-M dwarf component) common proper motion pairs identified from astrometry, photometry, and proper motions in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. A Monte Carlo based Galactic model is(More)
