John Franklin is a graduate student in the Physics Department, and a member of the Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC) and the Informatics and Statistics Science Collaboration (ISSC) of the Vera C. Rubin Observatory. He is interested in developing machine learning methods to solve interesting problems in cosmology, such as photometric redshift estimation, deblending, and lensing. Some of the overarching themes of this research are forward modeling, reconstructing high-resolution information from low-resolution data, and incorporating physical information into the structure of machine learning models.
