In the summer and fall of 2010, I worked with Dr. Michael J. Pierce on the Near Infrared Imaging Spectrograph.

I also began my own project building an optical spectrograph for the Red Buttes Observatory.

Above is a early SolidWorks drawing of the optical spectrograph components. Some components such as the slit and mounting plates have been removed for a less cluttered image. Image courtesy Conrad Vogel.
