Victoria Lepingwell

Postgraduate research student

I achieved my Master of Physics with Astrophysics (MPhys) from the University of Kent.

I am currently a PhD candidate - my research looks into using Machine Learning in Astronomy. As my research spans across two fields, I have Professor Tony Bird as my Astronomy supervisor and also Professor Steve Gunn as my Machine Learning supervisor. 

The aim of my research is to radically improve existing source detection algorithms by implementing a system that searches all points on the sky on all timescales for significant emission. This will involve looking at 'smarter’ ways to do surveys, and applying new data science and machine learning techniques, especially for transient detection.
