I am interested in the study of supernovae. I am the principal investigator of the Millennium Center for Supernova Studies (MCSS), which includes 5 professors, 4 postdocs, 4 PhD students and more than 10 undergraduates. Our activities involve a nearby supernova search program (CHASE) using the PROMPT robotic telescopes located at Cerro Tololo, the development of our own 50 cm robotic telescope, and photometric and spectroscopic followup of selected supernovae. The main goal of the MCSS is the study of the physics of supernovae and their use as distance indicators.
