I am an assistant professor in the Dept. of Engineering Science & Physics at the College of Staten Island (City University of New York), faculty in Physics at the CUNY Graduate Center, member of CUNY Astro, and resident research associate in the Dept. of Astrophysics at the American Museum of Natural History. I study low mass stars, brown dwarfs, & exoplanets by analyzing their spectra and modeling their atmospheres.

I am co-author of a new lab manual for introductory college-level astronomy courses published by Pearson: www.mccradyricelabs.com.

I frequently give public presentations, including at the Hayden Planetarium. I make fun videos, organize astronomy presentations at bars, and share science fashion. Some past projects include AMNH's Science Bulletins and Cosmic Discoveries iPhone app.
