Welcome! I am an astronomer turned data scientist. I created this website while I was still in academia, and it gives an overview of some of the research I was involved in.
Most recently, I have been working for RTInsights.com, where you can see my latest project -- creating a "recommendation system" that recommends to the user which article to view next. You can click on any article to see the recommender that I designed and implemented.
Previously, I was a postdoc at McGill University, within the newly created McGill Space Institute (MSI), as well as the slightly older Dept of Physics, working with Daryl Haggard.
Before that, I was a postdoc at Tel Aviv University, working with Hagai Netzer. And before that, I was a PhD student in the Dept of Astronomy at the University of Florida (graduated May 2012), and my adviser was Fred Hamann.
My research interests primarily centered around active galactic nuclei (AGN), which refers to the very centers of many galaxies. Each AGN contains a super-massive black hole (i.e., a black hole with a million to a billion times the mass of our own Sun), which is surrounded by a massive, rotating accretion disc that feeds the growing black hole.
Feel free to browse my website and read about my various research projects!
