Astronomical observations can probe physical phenomena at length and time scales, possibly in exotic environments largely inaccessible to terrestrial laboratories. While this underlies some of the successes of cosmological surveys over the past decades in discovering new physics, extracting such information is challenging because the data are typically noisy, and includes effects due to different processes (astrophysical, atmospheric and instrumental) tangled together in complex ways. I work in the area of extracting (inference along with classification) of such information from large surveys and am particularly interested in cosmology at late times, mostly through transients like supernovae and large scale structure. I am currently involved in LSST and ZTF.
