I am leading the development of major portions of two new optical time-domain surveys, the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF) and the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST).  My primary research interest is using the resulting massive optical variability datasets to identify rare compact binaries and to classify other sources of high energy radiation.  I use the ARC 3.5m and other telescopes to follow up transient and variable objects discovered by ZTF.
