Curriculum Vitae (305.96 KB)

I serve as a project scientist for the LINCC project - developing cutting edge open-source software to analyze and understand the vast amount of data expected from the upcoming LSST survey. In particular, I am working on developing time-domain software, with the goal of developing a full framework for scientific understanding of timeseries data. I am also involved in the scientific verification and commissioning of the LSST survey.

Previously I was a member of the astronomy data group at Princeton University - I was working on the development of a 2d reduction pipeline for the upcoming Prime Focus Spectrograph. This instrument is being installed on the Subaru Telescope. I completed my Ph.D. at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich) in the group of dr. Simon Lilly.
