Title:Experimental Astronomy Research and Opportunities in CASPER.

Abstract: The Central Texas Astronomical Society operates the Meyer Observatory, a research grade instrument supporting graduate research, individual research and observing, and public science education outreach. As a CASPER partner, Baylor students and faculty have access to the observatory for experimental research and observing. This presentation discusses the types and results of previous and ongoing research. Opportunities for involvement in future experimental projects will be presents as well.

Mr. Campbell is a member of the Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics, and Engineering Research, and represents the Paul Meyer Observatory of the Central Texas Astronomical Society (CTAS). He conducts experimental research on pulsating white dwarf stars and other photometric experiments. He also sponsors summer research students as part of the CASPER NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates program, and conducts outreach for science education to local schools.
