Sunset at the VLA

Me, me, me! Well, I've moved again. New!
Here is my current contact information, and our blog about the move to Sydney.

The story so far:

I study neutron stars: the embers of dead stars, more massive than our Sun, as tiny as your favorite small place (Ithaca, Socorro, Manhattan? 10 miles or so across), spinning up to hundreds of times every second, and sometimes more predictable than our very best clocks ...

My current CV (PDF).

Publications: Links to papers, preprints, scientific memos and conference proceedings.

The ultra-high velocity pulsar B1508+55 is escaping our Galaxy at over 1000 km/sec!
Read the press release text here (also archived at NRAO).

Pulsar Astrometry, including a list of all known neutron star parallaxes.

The intriguing Guitar Nebula: images and more.

Looking for something? Shared material for collaborators (temporary storage only!).

Taken at various times and places, scanned in very sporadically...

New Mexico: Photographs from 1998-1999, when I lived in Socorro.

Puerto Rico: Ten astronomers take a couple of days off in a lush tropical paradise.

Tennessee: The Smoky Mountains, or "What I did for New Year's Eve, 1999-2000."

Greece: Photographs from a week in Crete and a day in Athens.

Astronomy: Photographs of the various telsecopes our group uses, from trips out to the sites.

China: Photographs from my trip to Beijing for the COSPAR meeting, July 2006.

Sydney: We moved to Sydney in August 2006. You really should be looking at our blog for current photographs.

Other people, other places.

Ithaca is a small town with an attitude and a weather problem.
But as the bumper sticker says, "Ithaca is Gorges," and who am I to complain?

Friends and family: Meghan is a painter and graphic designer; my brother designs analog circuits; and most of my friends have transient web pages, though Scott, Britt and Nitin actually keep their pages alive.
