    CV
     
    A recent graduate with a Masters in Physics, I am new to Chicago. Though mostly an expert on features of the Solar Corona, my experiences leading to this are more diverse. Analyzing observational satellite data and writing software to facilitate that process, along with a rounded education in Physics including such diverse disciplines as thermodynamics and circuit analysis, results in a varied set of skills applicable to a wide range of technical situations.
     
    Employment History
     
    05/2011 – 05/2012.
    Research Assistant, Solar Lab, Physics Department, University of Memphis, Memphis.
     
    Advanced investigation into solar coronal phenomena.
    Published and presented at conferences: American Astronomical Society, American Geophysical Union, International Coronal Loops Workshop.
    Developed new software using the IDL language for different methods of analysis (Differential Emission Measure generation using both chi-squared minimization and recursive forward folding, as well as Emission Measure Locci generation) and for structure modeling (heating event propagation simulation and magnetic field-line extrapolation), as well as support software for data preparation and processing, including using the CHIANTI atomic physics database for spectral line fitting.
    Trained lab staff in the use of this new software as well as the pre-existing analysis routines.
    Installed analysis environment and software suite on a new computer system for the lab and modified existing software for the new equipment. We changed from an antiquated network of Pentium 3 generation Windows based computers to a new and top of the line Macintosh system. This involved some problems with the graphical interfaces of some of our proprietary software, and a full rewrite of our environmental scripts to a Unix like format.
    Trained and supervised students and managed their individual projects. Introduced new students to the specifics of the computer system, and continued to advise them through the completion of projects for publication.
     
    01/2007 – 05/2011.
    Student Researcher, Solar Lab, Physics Department, University of Memphis, Memphis.
     
    Investigated thermal characteristics of magnetic loops and other solar coronal structures.
    Developed custom software in IDL to perform such analyses.
    Attended conferences, presented posters, coauthored papers.
    Participated in the Starlight Program, a NASA funded educational program explaining and demonstrating solar spectroscopy to middle school students.
     
    10/2004 – 06/2005.
    Teletype Relay Operator, MCI, Memphis.
     
    Transcribed phone calls in real time for the deaf and hard-of-hearing.

    Abstract
     
    Cross Calibration of Hinode's X-Ray Telescope and Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrometer Using X-Ray Bright Points.
    Kimble, Jason Andrew. M.S. The University of Memphis. May 2011.
    Major Professor: Dr. Joan T. Schmelz.
    The focus of the present study is to produce a cross calibration factor for Hinode's X-Ray Telescope (XRT) and Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrometer (EIS) instruments by using observations of X-ray bright points. Material in the center of several bright points will be analyzed using data from EIS, and these results will be applied to concurrent XRT data to generate a relative response ratio between the two instruments. A secondary purpose is to investigate the thermal characteristics of bright points themselves. The differential emission measure curves produced from the EIS observations will themselves be valuable information about these coronal phenomena.
