Several key, open questions in astrophysics can be tackled by searching for and

mining large datasets for transient phenomena. The evolution of massive stars and

compact objects can be studied over cosmic time by identifying supernovae (SNe) and

gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) in other galaxies and determining their redshifts. Modeling

GRBs and their afterglows to probe the jets of GRBs can shed light on the emission

mechanism, rate, and energetics of these events.

In Chapter 1, I discuss the current state of astronomical transient study, including
