I am a member of the Observing Programmes Committee (OPC) Panel A for Periods 102 and 103. My experience as an ESO user centers around my time spent working on a five year guaranteed time KMOS survey. During this time I observed at Paranal 3 times for a total of 11.5 nights and have been involved in follow-up proposals with MUSE, X-Shooter, and SINFONI. I have had successful PI proposals focused on galaxy evolution with KMOS, FLAMES, and X-shooter.
