I’m a professional astronomer doing government-funded research as a Research Associate at Astronomical Observatory of Belgrade, Serbia. My main field of study is close binary stars. Most of the work I do revolves around characterizing these objects based on observations of their variable light. In 2013, I defended a PhD thesis titled “Modeling stellar oscillations in close binary systems” which was oriented towards asteroseismology, the study of stellar interiors through the observation of surface light irregularities caused by small, non-radial oscillations. But my interests have since shifted rather towards data science: statistics and machine learning as applied to the constantly growing amounts of data from automated surveys and satellite observatories.
I decided to start this blog as a way to share some of the insights and technical details of my work that aren’t directly related to or relevant for astronomy.
