I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in astrophysics and observationnal cosmology at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
I am actively involved in the Dark Energy Survey collaboration ("the DES", definitely one of the most exciting scientific project of this decade!), in which we are using machine learning methods to improve star-galaxy separation, a vital step for understanding the images of the sky and using them to address scientific questions (Soumagnac et al., 2013).
The other projects I lead during my PhD involve the very exciting Baryon Acoustic Oscillations (BAOs) and the way they can be used to constrain Dark Matter models (Soumagnac, Barkana, Sabiu et al. 2016).
Before starting my PhD, I graduated from the Ecole Normale Superieure (France), and took part in several research projects as an undergraduate and a Master student, in the BIPAC institute at University of Oxford (UK), the Alcator C-mod project at MIT (Massachussetts, USA), and the seismology group at the Midi-Pyrenees Observatory (France).
