I'm Francisco Paz-Chinchón, I'm astronomer. Paz + Astronomer = paztronomer... Get it?
I'm not only interested in Astrophysics, but also in how we can connect different sciences under the machine learning umbrella, sharing knowledge and methods across.
Currently I'm working at the Institue of Astronomy, at University of Cambridge.
My research has been driven by many subjects... but I can condense it in 2: statistical methods for science in intense computing, and time-domain astronomy. My interest in methods goes beyond simply using them as black-boxes: I like to detangle them, explore new perspectives, and push forward.
I'm passionate about the interdisciplinary, how far we can reach by sharing methods and strategies from one field to another.
In the astronomical side of things one area I have been studying is the variability of stars: from cool dwarf to the ones similar to our Sun. I've worked in photometric and spectroscopic surveys. Also, studied the mathematical non-linear behavior of time-series in astronomy. Recently I have been interested in gravitational waves too.
