About Me

I am a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellow in the Department of Astronomy at Harvard University working with Daniel Eisenstein, Charlie Conroy, and Doug Finkbeiner.

My research broadly deals with ''big data''-oriented statistical inference. I am especially interested in combining large datasets with theoretical models to create non-parametric yet informative ''semi-empirical'' models. I enjoy working in the ''dregs of science'' regime where lots of data are available but are noisy and/or plagued by large (possibly unknown) systematics. More details can be found on the Research page. My code can be found on GitHub.


I am located in Office A-202 at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA). My email address is jspeagle@cfa.harvard.edu.
