A complete list of my publications available online can be found at my homepage; at least I think it is complete. I am also the editor of a forthcoming book: Stellar Evolution, Nuclear Astrophysics, and Nucleogenesis.
My interest in Wikipedia
There are many reasons I am interested in contributing to Wikipedia. I use Wikipedia myself, and found that, in my field of research, many articles are either very sparse or entirely absent. So, I felt that this was a good way to give back to the community by editing articles on subjects which I can claim to have some expertise. The articles I primarily contribute to are on topics that I have read a lot of literature on and/or have experience using (for equipment, experimental methods, or physics). My own primary research is not noteworthy enough for inclusion, and so I feel there is no conflict of interest conforming to Wikipedia standards.
Further, writing about subjects forces one to organize one's thinking in a logical and accessible manner, and so it seems fairly impossible to write about any subject without learning more in the process.

I am a user of Gentoo GNU/Linux and advocate of both free software and open source software. I enjoy DJing downtempo music, but mostly around my house. I am known from time-to-time to play Magic the Gathering, GemStone IV, and Ultimate Frisbee.
