Today I talked to Dr Rebecca Nevin, a postdoctoral researcher at the Harvard center for Astrophysics. Her work involves using computational tools to help understand and classify galaxy evolution better.

Show Notes

In this episode I speak with Dr Nevin on her work building a tool to recognise and classify galaxy mergers. She also talked about using machine learning and statistical tools in her work to assess how realistic fake galaxies can be to the ones observed. We also looked at some of the types of galaxies mergers present.

What is Exploring Astrophysics?

Join me as I learn about the world of Astrophysics. My name is Vikram Bhamre and I am 16 years old. I will look into the daily lives of people in the profession, explore the breath of the topic, and gain a deeper understanding of the nuances of the field.
