My main focus is using Bayesian probability theory to detect and characterize extrasolar planets. Recently, my interests have included a comparison of various models of ellipsoidal variations. Additionally, I have been examining the significance of the Doppler effect on observed flux within the Kepler bandpass of the blackbody spectrum of a star.
