Participants

Maria Pruzhinskaya

astronomer

Researcher of Sternberg Astronomical Institute (Moscow). The main scientific interests are supernovae of all types. However, Type Ia supernovae seems to be the favorite one. As a post-doc, Maria spent two years in Clermont-Ferrand, that's why she can easily distinguish 6 semaines Saint-Nectaire from 8 semaines. Homepage: https://pruzhinskaya.com

Matwey Kornilov

astronomer

If you are using Linux, then you already came across Matwey's code. You can learn more about Matwey by looking at his GitHub account.

Konstantin Malanchev

astronomer

Python lover. Konstantin works as a researcher at Sternberg Astronomical Institute and as an associate professor at Higher School of Economics (Moscow). He defended his PhD on Non-stationary processes in astrophysical accretion discs under the supervision of Prof. N.I. Shakura. Now he is dreaming to study different machine learning methods in astrophysics. Konstantin's GitHub.

Emille Ishida

astronomer

Brazilian physicist, working in Astronomy and discovering Statistics. Emille's research is focused in Type Ia Supernovae (photometric classification, characterization and cosmological application), machine learning, Bayesian modeling and the connections between them. She is a leader of the Cosmostatistics Initiative (COIN). Homepage: https://emilleishida.com

Patrick Aleo

PhD student

PhD student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Patrick has worked on machine learning-informed cinematic astrophysical data visualization with NCSA’s Advanced Visualization Lab, and is now working on building an anomaly detection filter for real-time alert brokers such as ANTARES for deployment on LSST. He is interested in an interdisciplinary approach to apply machine/deep learning, visualization, and anomaly detection techniques to astronomical big data. In his free time, Patrick enjoys being a background actor in Hollywood films, and writes his own screenplays.

Alina Volnova

astronomer

Alina works at Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow). Her main scientific interests are gamma-ray bursts and their optical counterparts. She contributes to the observations of a binary neutron star merger detected through gravitational waves by the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo detectors. Alina is an incredible musician and vocalist.

Vladimir Korolev

aeronautical scientist

Lecturer at the Department of Aeromechanics and Flight Engineering of Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT). The main scientific interests are aircraft dynamics, control systems, identification of aerodynamic characteristics.

Sreevarsha Sreejith

astronomer

Astrophysicist from India, with the twin pet peeves of machine learning and galaxies. Sreevarsha works as a research associate at Brookhaven National Laboratory. She is currently working on deblending galaxy images using deep learning.

Etienne Russeil

cosmologist

Ph.D. student of the Laboratoire de Physique de Clermont (Clermont-Ferrand, France). Etienne works with the LSST working group where he mainly develops unsupervised machine learning algorithms aiming at identifying anomalous objects in large astronomical datasets.

Anastasiya Voloshina

astronomer

Intern of the Laboratoire de Physique de Clermont (Cler­mont-Fer­rand, France), graduated from Stern­berg As­tro­nom­i­cal In­sti­tute (Moscow, Russia). Anastasiya is currently looking for red dwarf flares hidden in ZTF data. Sometimes creates designs for astronomical T-shirts and logos.

Anastasia Lavrukhina

student

Student of the Faculty of Space Research at MSU. The main scientific interests are the application of machine learning methods to astrophysical data and object detection in large data sets.
