News & Updates

I am excited to announce that I have been selected to participate in the Astrobiology challenge of the 2022 edition of the Frontier Development Lab (FDL)!
I will be in the United States for two weeks! I am presenting some of my ongoing research about atmospheric retrievals and parameterizing PT profiles with machine learning at the University of Maryland, NASA Goddard, STScI, and finally at AbSciCon 2022 in Atlanta.
New paper on the arXiv: “Half-sibling regression meets exoplanet imaging: PSF modeling and subtraction using a flexible, domain knowledge-driven, causal framework?” Even better: This work has been accepted for publication in Astronomy & Astrophysics.
I have helped out to set up the website for the First Workshop on Causal Representation Learning at UAI 2022. Check it out, I think it will be a great workshop!
My work was featured in the 3/2021 issue of the Max Planck Research magazine.
I am now an associated PhD student of the ETH AI Center.
I am assisting with the organization of the DALI 2021 meeting. [Cancelled due to COVID.]
I will be presenting my research at the AI+X Summit 2021 in Zurich.
I am a TA for the seminar on Beyond i.i.d. learning: Causality, dynamics, and interactions at ETH in the fall of 2021.
I gave a virtual invited talk about my work on high-contrast imaging of exoplanets at the group seminar of the Planetary and Stellar systems Imaging Laboratory (PSILab) at the University of Liège.
I gave a brief public outreach talk about high-contrast imaging as a de-noising problem at the Machine Learning & Astrophysics Hack Days at ETH Zurich.
New workshop paper on the arXiv: “Physically constrained causal noise models for high-contrast imaging of exoplanets.” This work was accepted into the Machine Learning and the Physical Sciences workshop at NeurIPS 2020!
