While at the Center for Computational Astrophysics (CCA) as a predoctoral fellow in the spring of 2020, Fran Bartolić worked on a research project under the supervision of Drs. Dan Foreman-Mackey and Rodrigo Luger. Fran worked on building a probabilistic model for mapping the surface of Io, Jupiter’s volcanic moon, from one-dimensional time series data. The work was later published in The Planetary Science Journal.
Following his time at the CCA, Fran returned to the University of St Andrews in Scotland, where he is currently writing up his doctoral thesis a large fraction of which consists of research done in collaboration with CCA scientists.
After finishing the doctorate, Fran intends to leave academia and find a job as a researcher in the climate tech industry sector, working on predictive modeling of climate change.
