About Me

My name is Sidney Mau. I am a Physics Ph.D. candidate & NSF Graduate Research Fellow at Stanford University and completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Chicago.

My current work focuses on enabling precise and unbiased measurements of weak lensing cosmology through precise shear calibration for the Dark Energy Survey (DES) and the Vera C. Rubin Observatory's Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST).

I have also searched for faint satellites of the Milky Way to increase our census of ultra-faint star clusters and dwarf galaxies and collaborated within the DES Milky Way Working Group to study the microphysical properties of dark matter through statistics of dark matter-dominated ultra-faint dwarf galaxies in the Milky Way.


My academic publications are indexed through several services and preprints thereof are available on arXiv. Most software I write during the course of my research is hosted at GitHub.
