Joseph Moscoso is a second year Ph.D. student specializing in Nuclear Astrophysics in the Physics & Astronomy department. Prior to coming to UNC, he received a B.S. in Physics and a B.S. in Mathematics from Florida International University. Joseph is a recipient of an NSF Fellowship and performs his research at Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory (TUNL). He is a new hire at the Odum Institute.
Joseph’s current research focuses on the effect of nuclear reactions in stellar and galactic evolution and how to probe these reactions using the world’s most intense proton beam at TUNL. Joseph’s research includes use of nuclear theory to create reaction rate analysis codes and analyze experimental data with Bayesian models to use in numerical simulations. His first use of Bayesian statistics on deuterium reaction rates has been recently published in the Astrophysical Journal.
