Miriad - the main data reduction package of CARMA and BIMA
   My contributions:

Other software I have developed

CARMA Project Database - used to track and schedule all observations conducted by the CARMA array. It holds all observational information from every track. It consists of a C++ back end with a python user interface (connects to the database through a CORBA interface).
ISCAD - Interactive Spectral Calculator and Display. A Java based program that can display imported spectra (i.e. from observations), fit the spectra, identify known spectral line from databases, calculate column density and rotation temperature of observed transitions (including taking into account any beam dilution affects), and create synthetic spectra of known molecules. This program is currently in the final stages of development and will be available for download when it is complete.
