Dan Foreman-Mackey

I'm an Associate Research Scientist at the Flatiron Institute's Center for Computational Astrophysics. My main research interest is the application of probabilistic data analysis techniques to solve fundamental problems in astronomy. These days, I'm mostly using time domain surveys to discover new exoplanets, interpret the underlying population of these planets, and learn more about the variability of stars. I am also interested in the development of scientific software and open-source practices.


My full list of publications is available on ADS but here are a few recent highlights:


I post most of my slides to Speaker Deck but here are a few that I really love giving:


I write a lot of code for work and in my spare time. All my projects live in public repositories on GitHub. Here are some of my most popular research codes:
