Dr. Tina Peters

Tina is a Postdoctoral Fellow studying supernovae and quasars in large imaging surveys. She is working with Prof. Renée Hložek on supernovae science in preparation for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope. Additionally, she uses photometric data to classify and estimate redshifts of quasars in other large imaging surveys. Her work also involves using statistical methods and large probabilistic catalogs to measure cosmological parameters or calculate the quasar luminosity function.

Tina received her Ph.D. from Drexel University in 2016 where her supervisor was Prof. Gordon Richards. She joined the Dunlap Institute in August 2016.
