Machine Learning

In 2018, I participated in the NASA Frontier Development Lab, which pairs machine learning experts with science researchers to tackle challenges in the space sciences of interest to NASA. My team focused on classifying candidate exoplanet transits detected by the Kepler mission as well as the upcoming Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission using deep convolutional neural networks. Below is a short video by Google Cloud that tells the story, and also my talk at Google Cloud's Next '19 event in San Francisco where I highlighted the role of the Google Cloud Platform in our research. You can find more details on our work with the Kepler data in this ApJ Letter or a brief summary in this AAS Nova article.
