I'm an Associate Research Scientist at Columbia University in the Columbia Astrophysics Laboratory. My research interests are focused on the way the First Stars in the Universe formed, how they interacted with and transformed their environments, and how the fundamental mechanism by which stars form changed from that first generation to subsequent generations.
On this page, you can find information about me, a page about my astrophysical research and some pages linking to software I've been involved with. In particular, I'm the project leader for yt, an analysis and visualization toolkit for adaptive mesh refinement data. I'm also a member of the editorial board for CiSE Magazine, involved in the SciPy Conference, and I'm committed to developing tools to empower computational scientists to understand their data.
You can find things I work on elsewhere on the web, at the ADS, at the yt site (and blog!), bitbucket, and the Enzo project. I also have a G+ profile, where I am relatively active.
