* Summer 1999, Caltech, adviser: Kip S. Thorne. Studied tidal work done in a binary system and showed that the expression for the work is invariant when changing how gravitational energy is localized. (See my research page for details)
* Summer 1998, Caltech, adviser: S. George Djorgovski. Processed scans of photographic plates from Digitized Palomar Observatory Sky Survey. Worked on search for high-redshift quasars. Participated in observing runs at the Palomar 200-inch and 60-inch telescopes.
* Summer 1997, Caltech, adviser: Thomas Prince. Studied correlations between accretion torque and flux changes in low-mass x-ray binaries.
