My students and I were frequent users of the Arecibo Observatory. Tragically, the observatory structure collapsed in December 2020. Despite this sad event, pulsar research here remains strong using other observatories, such as the Green Bank Telescope.


Personal: My wife, Marian Wentworth, is CEO of Management Sciences for Health, a global nonprofit organization that works with communities and governments to strengthen health systems serving the world’s most vulnerable populations.  We have two daughters, one in college studying computer science and public policy, the other a graduate student in math, both ballet dancers in their spare time.
