Dino Bektešević researches how to do image analysis in big data settings. Currently, he is working on porting LSST image processing pipeline to Spark and executing it on AWS with hopes that the entire LSST stack can eventually be run in cloud by using a distributed, shared-nothing Big Data management system and Cloud service from the University of Washington called Myria. He is also involved in a group developing a new shift-and-stack moving object detection algorithm for astronomical images called KBMoD where he is a part of the group testing the algorithm on DECam images. His pet project and special interest is the extraction of long linear features that can be attributed to meteors for which he developed a linear feature detection algorithm capable of fast processing large number of images.
