Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez
Susana Eyhereamendy is Full Professor at the Faculty of Engineering and Sciences at the Adolfo Ibáñez University, she is Doctor of Statistics at Rutgers University, United States, 2004. Currently she is in charge of the astro-statistics group of the IAU, as an associate member of the Millennium Institute of Astrophysics (MAS). Her research is based on the modeling, analysis and interpretation of large databases, especially in the areas of astronomy and genetics. In this last field, his emphasis is on trying to understand the genetic basis of common diseases, using novel statistical methods. Recently, he has also paid special attention to the study of the population genetics of Chileans. He is currently studying the genetic basis of growth development and BMI in the children of the GOCS cohort. In the area of astro-statistics, she has worked, using machine learning techniques, on the classification of variable stars as well as other astronomical objects. Susana is a member of the scientific committee of Alerce (web: alerce.science). The ALeRCE broker is a Chilean-led broker which is processing the alert stream from the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF) and which aims to become a Community Broker for the Vera C. Rubin Observatory and its Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST), as well as other large etendue survey telescopes. We are using Cloud Infrastructure and Machine Learning models to bring real-time processed products and services to the astronomical community. Part of Susana’s research in this area is dedicated to the development of models for irregularly observed time series, to be implemented in ALerce.
