  • Combined galaxy clustering and weak lensing analysesI will discuss some of the challenges involved in producing robust cosmological constraints from photometric galaxy surveys such the Dark Energy Survey and LSST. In the context of the recent DES constraints from galaxy clustering and weak lensing, I will discuss in detail how we validate our cosmological inference using ...

  • Parameter Estimation for some Geoscience Applications using a Measure-Theoretic Approach
    Effective modeling of complex physical systems arising in the geosciences is dependent on knowing parameters which are often difficult or impossible to measure in situ.  In this talk we focus on two such problems, estimating parameters for groundwater flow and contaminant transport, and estimating parameters within a coastal ocean model.  ...

  • The Search for Life Beyond EarthTo search for life beyond Earth, we first have to decide on several key factors, such as where we should look. Several locations within our solar system have been identified that might be habitable. An ideal place to look might be the icy moons around Saturn and Jupiter with their ...
