Title: The Cosmostatistics Initiative (COIN) - reshaping scientific interdisciplinary collaborations [slides]


The Cosmostatistics Initiative (COIN) is an international working group built under the auspices of the International Astrostatistics Association (IAA). Its goal is to propose an alternative approach to scientific collaboration while contributing to the establishment of Astrostatistics as a discipline on its own. In this talk  I will describe the motivation and the logistic behind the COIN collaboration, and its Residence Programs, and provide a couple of examples on how interdisciplinary collaboration can shed light on long standing astronomical problems.

I have been a postdoctoral researcher at CEA Saclay since October 2015. I am currently working on the DEDALE project and the Euclid mission with Jean-Luc Starck.

My background is in optical detection of clusters of galaxies and photometric redshift estimation. I am now branching out into the field of PSF estimation using sparse signal processing techniques.
