My previous research involved the detection and characterization of exoplanets using aperture photometry. In 2009, I helped create an exoplanet transit search group, Survey of Transiting Extrasolar Planets at the University of Pittsburgh, or STEPUP for short (http://www.pitt.edu/~stepup/), which has conducted follow-up observations of transiting exoplanets, utilizing the Keeler telescope at the Allegheny Observatory. STEPUP is now an undergraduate-run research group that has collaborated with astronomers around the world to detect and confirm transits of extrasolar planets and planetary candidates.
