Hunstead Lectures 2017: “Accurate Astrophysics with Large Data Sets” by David W. Hogg
The 2017 Hunstead Lectures were delivered by David W Hogg, professor of physics and data science at the New York University.
David W. Hogg’s main research interests are in observational cosmology, particularly in approaches that use large galaxy data to infer the physical properties of the Universe. He is also a group leader at the Flatiron Institute, where he is working on the developing of new data-analysis systems.
This role at Flatiron let him apply his expertise in different fields, not just astronomy. He is also the PI of Astrometry.net – an “astrometry engine” that return correct astrometry data for every astronomical image.
Winner of several teaching Award, prof Hogg delivered the 2017 Hunstead Lectures, funded by a generous gift to the University of Sydney – the Dick Hunstead Fund for Astrophysics.
Great science communicator and engaging speaker, in these lecture series, Prof Hogg introduces modern approaches to data analysis and how to deal with massive and noisy data set.
