Below is a list of all research projects I have been associated with during my academic career. As this site is built up, I will add additional content around each research project to share much of the knowledge I've gained from each one, and possibly inspire others to continue some of my more interesting work.
Ph.D. Dissertation Project
It has long been known that binary stars have fundamental effects on stellar and cluster evolution. In order to understand these effects and quantify them, properties of binary systems within clusters must be accurately determined, such as masses. Getting mass determinations are difficult for unresolved binary systems, and this research will utilize a different technique to accurately determine masses of both stars in a binary. Of special importance is the ability to detect the numerous low-mass binary systems which have, so far, been out of reach for conventional radial velocity surveys.
