Astronomy and Astrophysics Research at Tarleton State University

Observational Astronomy

This interest is an extension of the work I did for my doctoral dissertation. It involves CCD photometry of eclipsing binary stars with a telescope and analysis of the observed data for the determination of the light curve elements in conjunction with a popular computational model in this field, the "Wislon-Divenney" model.

Computational Physics

Computer vision and Artificial Intelligence techniques are now widely used in a variety of industrial and scientific fields. My interest in the use of these tools is to design and construct robust automatic eclipsing binary star classifiers. This work will incorporate knowledge from advance in image processing and artificial neural networks.

Student Research Projects

Students are involved in a variety of different types of projects, see some of their poster presentations...
