Bryce Kalmbach


Postdoctoral Fellow

Research Interests

Cosmology, Solar System, Machine learning, Big Data


I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the DiRAC Institute and a UW Data Science Postdoctoral Fellow at the UW eScience Institute. I am a member of the Rubin Observatory Commissioning team as well as a member of two LSST Science Collaborations: the LSST Solar System Science Collaboration (LSST SSSC) and the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration (LSST DESC) where I am the co-convener of the Cosmological and Survey Simulations Working Group.

My scientific interests focus on creating new tools and methods to study large, complex datasets like the LSST through simulations, machine learning and high performance computing. These interests take me across a range of astronomical topics from detecting the faintest asteroids in our Solar System to measuring the distances to far-off galaxies.
