Hi! I am Marcelo Lares, an astronomer working at IATE, researcher at CONICET and Professor at the Observatorio de Córdoba, Universidad Nacional de Córdoba.

My primary research interest is the analysis of astronomical data, mainly using Big Data and statistical learning tools, to learn about the processes that shape the structures we see in the universe at many different scales.

My topics of interest:

  • Astrostatistics
  • Astroinformatics
  • Large scale structure of the universe
  • The transient universe (time domain astronomy)
  • Multimessenger astronomy
  • Visualization and data storytelling
  • Reproducible science, reliable scientific software development

I am a member of the TOROS, OTHER and ARCOVID19 projects.
