Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Exploring cosmic acceleration

In this project you'll have the opportunity to work with real supernovae data and determine if the universe is accelerating. This is a great introductory project for someone interested in learning more about cosmology and/or coding. You will use Python to analyze the data and perform calculations.

Introductory data science or machine learning

This is a great project for someone that's interested in getting started with Python and/or machine learning while working with large amounts of data. You will learn how to do so efficiently using various libraries in Python, and if you already know some Python, great! We will build on that. If not, this is not a problem at all. The topic of your data science or machine learning investigation can be anything you wish, including astrophysics!
