Senior Radio Astronomy Fellow Held Masterclasses and Public Lecture at AU


Kevin Vinsen, a senior research fellow at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) visited Algoma University to give a lecture and teach two half-day programming masterclasses open to the public.

Kevin Vinsen is a Senior Research Fellow at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR). ICRAR is a joint venture between Curtin University and The University of Western Australia, with funding from the State Government of Western Australia.

Kevin’s main research interests are high-performance computing at the ExaScale, developing methods for the automated classification of galaxies using multi-wavelength data, machine learning algorithms and modelling complex systems. Kevin is also working with Algoma University on the AstroQuest project.

Kevin considers himself one of the luckiest geeks on the planet. He is paid to do what he loves – astronomy and computing with some of the biggest, baddest computers on the planet. No wonder he is always smiling.
