My research emphasizes the development and demonstration of new instrumentation for Space Astronomy. Right now I am working on Starshades, a technology I invented and have been championing for the last decade. NASA has now decided to seriously study and develop a starshade for flight in the coming decade with the goal of performing spectroscopy of habitable exoplanets. The Search for Life outside the Solar System!
