Exploring Astrophysics

Today I am joined by Dr Boris Leisdedt, an astro-statistician and cosmologist at Imperial college London. I hope you learn something in this podcast, as I for one did not know an astro-statistician even existed until now!

Show Notes

I spoke to Dr Leistedt on how statistics plays an important role in astronomy, as well as why astronomy is somewhat unique in comparison to other fields of physics such as particle physics. In addition, we spoke more about astronomical datasets, and how the sheer amount of data makes it more difficult to process as well as how even hardware imprecisions have to be taken into account when projects are conducted.

What is Exploring Astrophysics?

Join me as I learn about the world of Astrophysics. My name is Vikram Bhamre and I am 18 years old. On my podcast, Exploring Astrophysics, I chat with some of the most incredible astrophysicists around the world on the most interesting questions left unanswered in astrophysics. What's amazing is how helpful and forthcoming they all are and I hope you too are inspired when you listen to them.
