Master’s Thesis: The Family Tree of GRBs
My Masters thesis for Data Science at the College of Charleston. In a nutshell, it is a method of clustering GRB lightcurves. Check out the PDF! Title: A Search for Self-Similarities in BATSE Gamma-Ray Burst Emissions Using Agglomerative Clustering Abstract: We present a new method for categorizing Gamma-Ray Burst (GRB) emission episodes with similar light […]
Monte Carlo Simulations and an Ant Colony Algorithm
A project by Thomas Cannon and Kara MacPhaul Ants are interesting little creatures – especially when it comes to finding the optimal route to a food source. With a web of pheromones a single ant alerts others nearby where the path to the food is. The other ants will follow suit and iterate on the […]

Smoke and Mirrors: Time-Reversed Structures in GRBs
Smoke and Mirrors: Signal-to-Noise and Time-Reversed Structures in Gamma-Ray Burst Pulse Light Curves We demonstrate that the `smoke’ of limited instrumental sensitivity smears out structure in gamma-ray burst (GRB) pulse light curves, giving each a triple-peaked appearance at moderate signal-to-noise and a simple monotonic appearance at low signal-to-noise. We minimize this effect by studying six […]

Surfing: The Blue Twin-Fin
There is this board shaper in Hampstead, NC. Greg Eavey Instagram: @eavey_surfboards. There are lots of small time shapers, but this guy’s work is something special. The caliber of his shapes are one thing, but the artistic ability and care that he puts into his boards through his entire hand-made process are what set him […]
Astronomy: Eclipse 2017
We are fortunate enough to live within walking distance to the beach. Specifically, Sullivan’s Island, SC. So when an influx of people, two million strong, arrived from all over the globe to watch the 2017 total solar eclipse from our sandy backyard, our local knowledge would surely have come in handy. We thought it would be […]
