I have a BS in Electrical Engineering Technology and an MSc in Astronomy and am working toward my PhD in Astronomy. I had a 37-year career in industry in the United States and have been teaching Astronomy and Physics at the University level since 2002. I am the Director of the University of New Hampshire Observatory in Durham, NH in the USA and an Extension Associate Professor/Space Science. My intent is to bring the study of exoplanets to our University to help inspire the next generation of exoplanetary astronomers.
