STScI Fellow
Sebastian Gomez headshot

My research broadly focuses on the discovery and analysis of exotic transients; mainly superluminous supernovae, tidal disruption events, pair-instability supernovae. I've also focused on machine learning methods to optimize transient selection methods in the era of large surveys.
