Maria Sadikov

I am currently pursuing a master’s degree under the co-direction of Prof. Julie Hlavacek-Larrondo and Prof. Laurence Perreault-Levasseur. My research focuses on galaxy clusters containing a supermassive black hole at their center. The project aims to develop machine learning algorithms that will help classify and characterize galaxy clusters using X-ray images. This research uses simulated images as well as images from actual observations.
