Abstract: Singular extended astronomical observations or multiple interacting sources present spatially-correlated structures which can be exploited by non-classical statistical methodologies to upscale property and kinematical inference. Using data from MUSE, Gaia and radiative transfer simulations, we developed pipelines that employ the Integrated Nested Laplace Approximation (INLA) method to reconstruct astronomical scalar and vector fields regarding the unobserved internal motion of open clusters and galactic properties maps.
- João Silvestre: 30 years old. 1st year student of the Physics Doctoral programme at Instituto Superior Técnico and member of the CENTRA/COSTAR research group, where my main interest is not having to deal with the issues of developing hardware anymore;
- Pedro Garcia: I did 23 successful laps across the ecliptic plane around the Sun. 1st year student of the MSc in Physics, at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, and member of CENTRA/SIM where my main interests are Astro-Statistics and coffee.
