TEAM MEMBERS

Minghan Chen is an undergraduate student majoring in physics and astronomy. He is currently working with Michelle Ntampaka on applying machine learning to measure the mass of the Coma cluster.

Aristide Doussot is a visiting Masters student from Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, where he studies physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. For his internship at CMU, he is currently working on the Epoch of Reionization.

Michelle Ntampaka is a graduate student working on constraining cosmological models with galaxy clusters through the application of modern machine learning techniques and innovative statistics. As a former teacher, she now uses her background in education to advance science communication and outreach. She has traveled to Rwanda to train science teachers how to deliver memorable lessons using common materials.
