research statement, and
teaching statement.

I provide service to the international astronomy & astrophysics community through the American Astronomical Society Journals (i.e., the AJ, ApJ, ApJ Supplement, ApJ Letters, and Research Notes). I've been a Scientific Editor since 2009, Lead Editor for the High Energy Phenomena and Fundamental Physics corridor since 2016, and Senior Lead Editor since 2019. A little bit about my service is described in this April 2016 AAS Nova article. I'm also driving the AAS Youtube channel - see this April 2019 AAS Nova article.
