Cluster Science Team Leader

The Panchromatic Hubble Andromeda Treasury survey is a 4-year survey of the Andromeda galaxy with the Hubble Telescope.  I'm leader of the 20-person international team of researchers focusing on star cluster science in this survey.  I organize sessions at our yearly team meeting and regular phone conferences.  I also am the primary advisor for graduate student Cliff Johnson at U. of Washington.
