The biggest software project I’ve been involved with is MOSFiT: the Modular Open Source Fitter for Transients. This code allows users to construct and fit semi-analytic light curve models to transient data, and is optimised for use with the Open Supernova Catalog
My personal Github page also contains a few Python scripts that I’ve written and use a lot in my research. These are provided free for anyone who might find them useful!
- Simple script to reduce FITS images using astropy tasks
- Photometry Sans Frustration (PSF): Carry out point-spread function fitting photometry using a quick and convenient wrapper for Iraf’s daophot
- Superbol: Construct a bolometric light curve from multicolour photometric time-series data
If you use Superbol, please cite (reference coming soon…)
