Andy Casey, Ph.D.

Visiting Scholar, CCA, Flatiron Institute

Associate Professor Andy Casey joined the Center for Computational Astrophysics (CCA) as a Visiting Scholar in 2024, on sabbatical from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.

His research specializes in stars, and how they link to their environment on small (exoplanet) and large (galactic) scales. He has substantial expertise in measuring precise stellar properties and chemistry from spectra, and in using those measurements to better understand how stars and galaxies evolve over time. While this remains his focus, Casey also has a keen interest in data analysis and statistical inference. These interests have led to a research profile with expertise spanning numerous areas, including astrometry, asteroseismology, radio interferometry, gravitational waves, nucleosynthesis, near-field cosmology, and stellar streams. He is the data analysis lead for the Milky Way Mapper in SDSS-V.

Casey was awarded a prestigious DECRA fellowship from the Australian Research Council in 2019, following a research fellowship at the University of Cambridge, UK. During his PhD with the Australian National University, Casey was a long-term visiting student at MIT as a recipient of the Australian Prime Minister’s Endeavour Award. He has a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering from Monash University.
