My latest project - trying to learn German, in preparation for my trip to Germany next year. So far, it's going pretty Frühstück.

Green Bank

Just before I graduated, I finished my senior design project at the Green Bank Telescope. My team recently visited the site, and we got to tour the telescope.

Green Bank Trip

What we did was basically design a couple of interface cards to read data from a position encoder, telling us the current position and velocity of the feed arm controlling the data receivers.  This involves new hardware design for the cards themselves as well as writing some software to control them.
