Imaging Scientist, Physical Science Department, New Mexico State University
"I am committed to ensuring that the relationship between amateur and professional astronomers continues and thrives. I want to ensure that the membership of the AAVSO grows and remains active through education and outreach. We should continue and strengthen outreach to the general public. I will work to maintain, enhance, and grow the observational hardware and software capabilities of the AAVSO. I will work to give AAVSO members more opportunities to improve their observing capabilities through education. We can accomplish this by continuing to offer more AAVSO courses directly and through webinars."
