My name is Colin Jacobs. I’m a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing at Swinburne University in Melbourne, Australia.

After a career as a software engineer and software architect (among other detours, including four years in professional politics) I am studying the application of modern machine learning, particularly deep learning, to astrophysics, including gravitiational lensing and the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope. See my intro post for more.
