LINCC Frameworks Project Scientist

Neven is a lead project scientist for LSDB and TAPE teams, developing methods to cross-match large datasets and efficiently handle large amounts of time domain data. Neven’s previous software development experience is as a pipeline specialist for the Prime Focus Spectrograph, the flagship instrument for the Subaru telescope. His research focus is extragalactic time-domain science, especially time variability of active galactic nuclei. Neven uses large datasets and advanced statistical methods to determine the connections between variability and physical parameters driving this variability. He is involved with commissioning the LSST survey, developing metrics to assess the quality of prompt processing pipeline performance
