About Me

Hello. My name is Neven Caplar. I am an Associate professional specialist in the astronomy data group at Princeton University. More information about my professional work is available at my homepage here. Currently, I am working as a software pipeline developer for the upcoming Prime Focus Spectrograph, to be installed on Subaru telescope. My academic interests are mainly active galactic nuclei (AGNs). During my PhD, at ETH Zurich I studied the co-evolution between galaxies and AGN, and the time variability of AGNs.

I enjoy analyzing and working on data. As two examples outside astronomy, in this conference proceeding (http://arxiv.org/abs/1305.5189) you can read about various correlations between rating of players and their other skill parameters in popular game “Heroes of Newerth”. This study (https://arxiv.org/abs/1610.089849) used machine learning in order to quantify gender bias in the citation counts for women astronomers.

When I catch some time, I try to do more of similar sort of analysis of this webpage, with range of diverse datasets.
