Kaisey Mandel is the University Assistant Professor of Astrostatistics at the University of Cambridge, with a joint interdisciplinary appointment at the Institute of Astronomy and Kavli Institute for Cosmology, and at the Statistical Laboratory of the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics. He is also Chair-Elect of the Astrostatistics Interest Group of the American Statistical Association.
Kaisey Mandel's research is at the intersection of astrophysics, cosmology, statistics, and machine learning. He is interested in applications of Bayesian statistics and machine learning to time-domain astronomy. In particular, his research group develops and applies advanced statistical methodology for characterising and analysing multi-wavelength time-series observations of stellar explosions in the night sky and for optimising their use as cosmological probes. He is generally interested in cross-disciplinary applications of data science and artificial intelligence in the sciences.
