Neven Caplar


Postdoctoral Fellow

Research Interests

Variability, AGN, big data


I am a postdoctoral scholar with a dual appointment; half the time working on LSST commissioning and half of the time serving as an Associate Director for LINCC Commissioning. My previous software development experience is as a pipeline specialist for the Prime Focus Spectrograph, the flagship instrument for the Subaru telescope. My research focus is extragalactic time-domain science, stochastic models of star-formation, and galaxy-black hole evolution. My main interest is the optical variability of active galactic nuclei, where I use large datasets and advanced statistical methods to determine the connections between variability and physical parameters driving this variability.
