I’m an astronomer in the JHU Department of Physics and Astronomy, using wide field imaging surveys to discover and study Type Ia Supernovae (SNIa). At the moment I am most interested in measuring the explosion rate of very distant SNIa, as a means to constrain and test models of SNIa progenitor systems. As the SN project manager in the CANDELS and CLASH programs, I am using the Hubble Space Telescope to discover the most distant SNIa ever seen, giving us unique leverage for unveiling the nature of SNIa progenitor systems.
