ABOUT

My name is Jay, 이재현, and I'm an observational astrophysicist working at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA). My research focuses on stellar abundance analysis, old stellar clusters and populations in the Milky Way Galaxy, Galactic structure, and astrostatistics. As a data archive scientist in the SAO Telescope Data Center, I routinely inspect, process, distribute, and archive the science data taken with the CfA ground-based optical & near-infrared telescopes, and make the reduced data available to the public. I have about ten years experience in teaching and developing physics, astronomy, and data science courses (in both traditional and online formats) at the college and graduate school level.
