My initial background and training is in Mars telescopic observations. My thesis work used Mars images and spectra obtained from Mauna Kea Observatory in Hawaii, and I have also been involved in Mars telescope observing from observatories in France, California, and Wyoming. Since 1995 I have been a team member or team leader of a group of astronomers observing Mars with the Hubble Space Telescope. It is very exciting to be able to use such a spectacular telescope in space to observe Mars!
