About the Author

I got into astronomy at age 12, and took my first astrophoto from the backyard of my parents' home near Munich, Germany before my 14th birthday. I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Physics Department at Central Michigan University. My daytime work is on electret polymers which can be used as sensors and actuators. Here is my research website.
