(she/her)

stirring this boat in all directions. Astrophysicst, Data Scienctist.

fbb.space

Phd Candidate

(he/him)

Riley works on stellar time-domain data processing and detrending with Principal Component Analysis

 

He grew up in Fairbanks, AK and like biking, hiking, skiing, playing music (trumpet & guitar), and cooking. He also enjoy nerd stuff like video games, anime & manga, science fiction/fantasy, and tabletop role-playing games.

MSc. Candidate

(she/her)

Tatiana works on CNN models to classify transients and discover new Astrophysical Objects

 

She is a Colombian physicists that love animals a lot and because she loves them she doesn't eat them. She is on the way to being a scientist.

Post Doctoral Researcher

(she/her)

Somayeh works on generating templates for stripped-envelope supernovae using Gaussian Processes. She is an expert in microlensing and machine learning.

She loves reading and traveling!

Phd Candidate

(she/her)

Willow works on modeling stripped envelope supernova light curves. (Heads up, this will potentially change within the week).

 

She enjoy playing the guitar with mediocrity, She is a beginner pointillism artist, She has a small fountain pen and ink collection, and she an amateur lock picker.

Undergraduate

(she/her)

Gihane Rachid studies maximized efficiency of collecting spectra by investigating what the minimum possible resolution is at which supernovae spectra can still be classified correctly by artificially reducing the spectral resolution.

In her free time she likes to garden, hike, and stargaze with my telescope.

Phd Candidate

(he/him)

Xialong evaulates the performance of LSST's observing strategy. He is building a platform for the detection of light echoes, faint reflection of old stellar explosions.

Ming Lian

MSc. Candidate

(he/him)

Ming is developing a program for identifying fast transients.

 

Cyclist/soccer player/calligrapher/guitarist if physics did not steal him away from all that.

Siddharth Patel

Undergraduate

(he/him)

Sid is working on creating an interface to access simulated LSST time series and sonify them.

He likes to read classic books and play video games in his free time, especially enjoyed playing chess recently.
