Dan Foreman-Mackey

I'm a Sagan Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Washington working on next generation astronomical data analysis. My main research interest is the application of probabilistic data analysis techniques to interesting datasets in astronomy. These days, I'm mostly working with Kepler data; everything from the raw pixel values to catalog level inferences. I'm 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:
