Astronomical transients are stellar objects that become temporarily brighter on various timescales and have led to some of the most significant discoveries in cosmology and astronomy.
We demonstrate our methods' ability to provide anomaly scores as a function of time on light curves from the Zwicky Transient Facility.
We train a new version of BayeSN, continuous from 0. 35--0. 95 $\mu$m, which we use to model the properties of SNe Ia in the rest-frame $z$-band, study the properties of dust in their host galaxies, and construct a Hubble diagram of SN Ia distances determined from full $griz$ light curves.

The field of astronomy has arrived at a turning point in terms of size and complexity of both datasets and scientific collaboration.
We present RAPID (Real-time Automated Photometric IDentification), a novel time-series classification tool capable of automatically identifying transients from within a day of the initial alert, to the full lifetime of a light curve.

The Photometric LSST Astronomical Time Series Classification Challenge (PLAsTiCC) is an open data challenge to classify simulated astronomical time-series data in preparation for observations from the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), which will achieve first light in 2019 and commence its 10-year main survey in 2022.
