Dmitry Duev


Hi, I'm Dmitry! I'm an astronomer currently working as a postdoctoral scholar at the California Institute of Technology.

Research

The main broad areas of my scientific interests are radio astronomy, astroinformatics, and high-contrast imaging.

As a part of the Planetary Radio Interferometry and Doppler Experiments initiative (lead by JIVE in the Netherlands), I am particularly interested in the applications of radio astronomy to human-made objects for the use in planetary science, interplanetary plasma physics, geodesy, and fundamental physics: near-field and space very long baseline interferometry (VLBI), VLBI and Doppler tracking of spacecraft, signal delay modelling, propagation effects, phase calibration and imaging methods.

As a member of the Robo-AO team at Caltech, I do high-resolution imaging and astrometry of Solar system bodies with this robotic adaptive optics system.

I am most passionate about coding and I spend most of my time doing just that. At Caltech, I've built (distributed and containerized) data processing, analysis, and archive systems for Robo-AO and the Zwicky Transient Facility.
