Max Dornfest is a student hire working under Dr. Zarija Lukić and Dr. Hannah Ross. His duties include running statistical analysis of Nyx output data to better understand the effect of dark matter dynamics on the large-scale structure of the universe. Specifically, his current projects are analyzing baryonic and dark matter particles through 1-dimensional skewers, and using constitutional neural nets to lower computation time on large-scale simulations. A senior at UC Berkeley, he is pursuing a double major in physics and political science and a minor in public policy, with an expected graduation date of Spring 2020.
