Research My research is at the intersection of computer science and astronomy. I mostly work on principled data analysis methods for astronomical images, drawing on old and new results from computer vision, machine learning, signal processing, information theory, and statistics. On the astronomy side, the goal of my work is to make the best possible use of the data we have to answer scientific questions and to discover new questions to be asked. On the computer science side, I use astronomical images, with their beauty and underlying simplicity, as a motivator for the development of new machine learning and inference models and methods.
