Nico Carver is a senior assistant librarian in the Student Multimedia Design Center at the University of Delaware Library. He coordinates services at the Center, and consults on questions related to photography, video production, web design, and multimedia software. His background is in experimental filmmaking, which he studied at Hampshire College. He holds an M.S. in Library Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
His interest in astrophotography began in earnest three years ago when he visited Iceland and captured the Aurora Borealis. Since then he has joined the Delaware Astronomical Society and now specializes in photographs of large diffuse nebulae, which he captures mostly from his backyard in Newark.
