Physics Colloquium

March 3, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Please join us Thursday, March 3rd, at 4PMFor the Physics ColloquiumZoom link: Passcode: PHYSCOLL Dr. Frederica BiancoUniversity of Delaware “Beyond the stars: data-driven approaches to astrophysics, survey design, and interdisciplinary research” Astrophysics is the perfect nursery for Data Science: we cannot touch the stars, we cannot explode them in a lab. We know them only through our data collection efforts, messy, complex data. The Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) is about to usher yet a new era in data-intensive astrophysics. The “next-generation” ground-based astronomical survey, LSST will generate 20TB of information-rich optical-imaging data every night for 10 years starting in 2024. The survey is designed to study nearly all subdomains of astrophysics, from the closest Solar System objects to the farthest cosmological explosions, and with a unique data policy that gives unrestricted access to all US and Chilean scientists, it is staged to be truly transformational. I will talk about how we are optimizing the survey and preparing to unknock the most pressing secrets about the universe and discover unusual and even completely new phenomena with LSST through a community- and data-driven approach. Beyond Rubin, I will discuss examples of interdisciplinary projects where Data Science techniques common in astrophysicist are brought across domains: in Urban Science, where we study the urban ecology and sociology through images, in COVID-19 predictions to support local hospital resource planning, and even in feminist approaches to substance abuse.
