About me

Location Pittsburgh, PA
Introduction Peter Freeman is a project scientist in Carnegie Mellon University's Department of Statistics. He received his Ph.D. in Astronomy and Astrophysics from the University of Chicago, and now works at the interface between astronomy and statistics. His astrostatistical research has included forays into source detection in X-ray images, analysis of cosmic microwave background data, estimation of photometric redshifts, and classification of supernovae based on their light curves, among many other projects. As a CANDELS affiliate researcher, his interest lies in quantifying a galaxy's appearance, or its morphology, and using that information to constrain models of galaxy formation.
