As a PhD student in astrophysics at UC Berkeley, I develop scalable pipelines for automated detection of galaxies in images of the night sky. We have taken about 100 terabytes of multi-wavelength images using 2-4 meter telescopes, and I have helped detect and model almost a billion objects in the images. After my PhD, I want to be a data scientist/data analyst or software engineer, where I use my image analysis, machine learning, statistics, and high performance computing skills to solve real-world problems in society.
