Virtual Observatory

I have contributed to the software libraries of the Virtual Observatory. I was a lecturer for the VO Summer School in Aspen, CO. The VO aims to "provide improved access to the ever expanding astronomical data resources available on-line." The VO protocols and software aim to provide interoperability between databases and services for astronomical datasets. A VO book is available from PASP, to which I have contributed a number of articles on various applications.
