Welcome to my home page
Here you will find my most representative work in cosmology and galaxy formation with a strong focus on data-driven science, pattern recognition and data visualization. I also enjoy producing multimedia and interactive media for outreach. Please take a look at the sections above and if you find something interesting send me an email!
Group / Students
- Nathaniel Stickley started his postdoc with me in August/2014. He has been developing StratOS, a Big Data framework for general computing. StratOS takes advantage of standard Big Data technologies developed for datacenters and makes them available in a transparent way for general scientific computing. With StratOS you can analyze Terabytes or Petabytes of data stored in a datacenter as if you were running a regular program in your laptop.
- Jianan Hui is a grad student from the department of Statistics. I am co-advising her in her project developing statistical algorithms for analysis of large graphs. These graphs represent the evolutionary history of galaxies across time and across adjacent realizations in a new "parallel universe" simulation we just ran.
