Isaac Shivvers

I’m a data-driven scientist with a background in observational astrophysics, and I’m looking to apply my skills to a new set of challenges. Self-directed and deeply engaged, I have a proven track record in computationally-driven scientific research utilizing machine learning and statistical models, and I'm an experienced communicator of complex processes to non-technical audiences.

I'm currently finishing my graduate studies in Astrophysics at UC Berkeley, working with Prof. Alex Filippenko. I study core-collapse supernovae via detailed studies of their spectra, obtained mostly from the Shane Telescope at Lick Observatory and the Keck Telescopes atop Mauna Kea.

You can learn more about my research here, you can see my resume here, you can explore some of the interactive astrophysical websites I've built here, or you can contact me directly here!
